Join this free, 4-part webinar series featuring discussions with authors from recently published articles in Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education® (JMBE). Come meet other biologists who do discipline-based education research (DBER), become more familiar with study design and interpretation of data of DBER studies and learn how to improve your teaching in the process!  Join us every third Friday at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT from Feb. 19 to May 21, 2021.

After attending the webinar, participants will be able to do the following:
  • Discuss critical aspects of DBER research study design.
  • Interpret results of DBER studies.
  • Describe how DBER studies can inform classroom or laboratory teaching.
  • Be more motivated to conduct your own DBER study and publish in JMBE!
