1 July 2017 – Call for abstracts for  61st Annual ACUBE Meeting

October 20th– 21st 2017 in Columbia College, Columbia South Carolina

You are invited to submit a proposal to present at the 61st Annual ACUBE meeting October 20th to 21st at Columbia College, Columbia, South Carolina. Your proposal can be on any topic related to college and university biology education.  We also welcome student presentations on teaching and learning.  Presenting at an ACUBE meeting provides a wonderful opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to gain experience presenting at a national meeting.

ACUBE has four basic types of presentations: posters, 20 minute, 40 minute, and 80 minute.  Topics on any area of biology education are welcomed, but note that presentations based on faculty or student scientific research are not accepted.

 20 minute presentations:  Typical talks given in the 20 minute time slots are overviews or ideas. Successful 20 minute talks tend to present a summary or single concept. If your presentation has a lot of data and/or you are looking for feedback from attendees, consider the 40 minute time slot.

40 minute presentations/discussions:  Group discussions and/or studies that attempt to discuss data work best in 40 minute time slots.  This allows time to fully explain your pedagogical question, methods, and results as well as leaves time for attendees to ask questions.

80 minute:   These time slots are reserved for those wishing to present a hands-on workshop that trains attendees.  They can take place in a classroom, biology laboratory, or computer laboratory.

Posters:  Posters are welcome on any biology education topic, and ACUBE’s poster sessions are some of the liveliest aspects of our Annual Meeting.  A friendly reminder that posters on scientific research (done by you and/or your students) are not appropriate for ACUBE Annual Meetings; consider bringing those to your state Academy of Science Meetings.

If you’re interested in presenting please log on to the ACUBE website and click on the Annual Meeting link (http:///annual-meeting/).  Registration, payment, and abstract submission take place concurrently.
