Join us In Person at 2023 ASMCUE
The ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) is driven by, for and with the community! After 3 years of virtual meetings, 2023 ASMCUE will be co-located with Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minoritized Scientists (ABRCMS) in Phoenix, Ariz. The ASMCUE conference will take place over a 3-day period and is expected to bring together educators from all over the world for an immersive experience. Attendees will gather to learn classroom strategies, hear biology education research updates and meet new colleagues who teach the same classes.
Rather than a theme for ASMCUE content this year, the ASMCUE Planning Committee established a “subtitle” that welcomes attendees back to the in-person experience for the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of ASMCUE:
Gap Junctions: Reconnecting Our Community for Diffusion of Ideas
This name reflects the mission, experience and emotions of ASMCUE.
What Will You Gain From Attending ASMCUE?
- Identify new ideas and resources that you can implement right away for teaching undergraduates.
- Re-establish and build new relationships with educators and educational partners.
- Incubate ideas with educators at all levels gathered from around the world.
- Find collaborators for a new scholarly project.
- Gain inspiration and insights from biology education leaders.
- Leave feeling re-energized about your love of teaching!
Consider Sampling ABRCMS!
- For over 20 years, the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minoritized Scientists (ABRCMS) has been the go-to conference for underrepresented trainees and faculty and program administrators who support them.
- This new co-location of ABRCMS and ASMCUE allows attendees of both conferences to sample content and network with audiences from a different type of conference than they normally attend.
- In 2022, over 5,500 individuals attended ABRCMS, representing 12 scientific disciplines.
