Microbrew

Submission deadline: April 15, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (PT) 

A microbrew showcases a “brewing idea” in any of the subdisciplines in the biological sciences. Presenters can share or field test new ideas and solicit feedback from peers. Unlike other presentation opportunities at ASMCUE, assessment data are NOT required. There will also be a collaboration space following the presentations for continued discussions. 
 
Microbrew Details
  • Consists of a 10-minute presentation and 5-minute Q&A period.
  • Accepted Microbrews will be published online to the ASMCUE 2019 website and mobile app.
  • Microbrews may include up to two presenters.
  • No technology support (no computer, projector, or sound equipment)
  • Presenters will have access to one flip chart in the room.
  • Virtual handouts, physical handouts, and/or props – Following acceptance, presenters will receive additional information about handouts for use during the presentation. Presenters will be responsible for printing and bringing physical handouts and/or props to the conference.

Posters focus on education research outcomes associated with any of the subdisciplines in the biological sciences. This opportunity provides an excellent venue for faculty to showcase their educational research.

The abstract describes innovative teaching approaches or the specific activities conducted by students and indicates how those changes affected student learning.  Work described in the abstract must have been tested on students and assessment of the activity’s outcomes must be described. Analyzed data and conclusions must be included.

Abstracts must be based on results that have not been published in any journal or presented at any public, scientific, or educational conference, nationally or internationally, before August 1, 2019.
Exception: ASMCUE is an affiliated meeting of ASM Microbe 2019. Abstracts submitted to ASM Microbe may also be submitted to ASMCUE. Authors should note that the submission and review processes for each meeting are independent.
