Come to the BioQUEST/QUBES Summer Workshop to explore how different styles of undergraduate research experiences (UREs) intersect with good pedagogical practices, increase quantitative biology skills, and promote inclusivity and diversity. We will also explore and some of the key challenges around these important issues in teaching including mentoring, logistics, and funding. This workshop is appropriate for faculty from all types of undergraduate institutions, including community colleges, PUIs, and MSIs. The workshop supports interdisciplinary collaborations, particularly between life science, mathematics and statistics faculty. Institutional teams are encouraged to apply. High school faculty offering research experiences or collaborating with undergraduate faculty are invited to participate. Participants will have opportunities to share their work through posters, “Works in Progress,” and hands on sessions, as well as a community sharing session focused on UREs. Future faculty may consider applying to the “Future Faculty” program. Workshop organizers are committed to providing an accessible and inclusive experience for all participants.
