The ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) is driven by, for and with the community! Attendees gather to learn classroom strategies, hear biology education research updates and meet new colleagues who teach the same classes. For undergraduate educators, ASMCUE Virtual is an event not to be missed!

In 2021, hundreds of educators tuned in for 20 hours of live, interactive programming over three days. Attendees also had access to 39 hours of additional pre-recorded sessions and microbrews submitted by fellow educators. Plus, 98% of the live talks will be available on-demand through Dec. 2021. All in all, attendees enjoyed 148 talks, 12 live roundtable chats and 33 biology education research posters. 

Mark your calendar to join us for even more engaging live talks and virtual networking with like-minded educators from July 11-15, 2022!
