ASMCUE is YOUR Meeting! Eighty-percent of 2016 conference presentations were submitted by attendees!
We continue to need your help in building the conference and determining content. So don't just attend ASMCUE - be a presenter and showcase your work! We have two ways for you to participate.
Microbrew Oral Presentations
Submit your ideas and thoughts on classroom and laboratory best practices and activities. If accepted, authors are given a 15-minute time slot to deliver an oral presentation about their work and solicit feedback from their colleagues.
Submit an abstract on any aspect of microbiology or biology education research for the poster session. This opportunity provides an excellent venue for faculty to showcase their scholarly work in teaching and share the impact on student learning.

Aligning ASMCUE Abstracts to Biological Concepts
In 2009, ASM established a curriculum task force to update the ASM Curriculum Guidelines for Undergraduate Microbiology Education. Building on the 2011 Vision and Change report which urged faculty to refrain from presenting science as a sea of facts and work towards ensuring that students have a foundational understanding in biology, the Committee affirmed the core biological concepts of evolution, structure and function, pathways, information flow, and systems. They also identified a sixth concept specific to microbiology, the impact of microorganisms. Abstract authors will be asked to identify up to two concepts that best relate to their submission.
Accepted Poster Abstracts Published in JMBE
Abstracts accepted for ASMCUE poster presentations will be formatted and published in the Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education’s (JMBE) Spotlight issue, which strives to highlight science education research and ready-to-use education activities and tools to the ASM community. The Spotlight issue includes hand-selected articles from the previous year’s JMBE volume and abstracts for the upcoming ASMCUE meeting. Attendees at ASMCUE will receive a hardcopy of JMBE’s Spotlight issue as part of their attendee packet.
