Great job Mark! As you know, I'm the "biggest fan" of microbiology educators at ASM. I'll add that ASM stands ready to help educators Occupy the Curriculum! Over the past year and a half, the ASM community of educators worked hard to create the "Recommended Curriculum Guidelines for Undergraduate Microbiology." Everyone can read about this document and the consensus-building process that created it in the Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education here: http://jmbe.asm.org/index.php/jmbe/article/view/363. The guidelines are based on the AAAS/NSF "Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education: A Call to Action" report (http://visionandchange.org/finalreport). This year, at the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (http://www.asmcue.org), faculty attendees will begin working on a list of learning objectives that align with the recommended curriculum guidelines with the long-term goal of building a scaffold of lab/classroom activities that scaffold with these objectives. Go microbes & thank you to Mark and all the other faculty members who are helping to raise the next generation of scientists!
