Dissemination Station Resource Fair 

2016 bethesda

Are you a member of an NSF RCN-UBE community and want to share your network’s accomplishments and future plans? Does your institution have a grant that brings together STEM educators to improve student learning? Are you a non-profit leading efforts to improve mentoring in the life sciences?  If so, ASMCUE has the venue for you to find or exchange information and resources relevant to your work as educators.

ASMCUE will host a Dissemination Station Resource Fair on Friday, July 27, from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. This lunchtime event allows attendees to share progress on relevant projects/programs with colleagues in an effort to find collaborators and solicit feedback. This opportunity is geared towards federal, state, or other grant recipients that did not find a niche in concurrent education sessions, posters, or microbrews.

Most grantors want you to identify ways you have “disseminated” your projects and findings to a broader audience. The Dissemination Station gives you this opportunity. 

The ASMCUE Program Committee will use their discretion when confirming the tables for the Dissemination Station Resource Fair. Due to limited space, they might not be able to accommodate all requests.

Eligibility for Participation

-        At least one representative must be present for the duration of the fair.

-        All representatives must be registered for ASMCUE.

-        Representatives are not permitted to promote or sell products or services during the fair.
