The Undergraduate Biology Education Research version 2 (UBERV2) REU Site is a nine-week (May 20 – July 20, 2019), NSF-funded program to involve undergraduates in designing and conducting research on undergraduate biology teaching and learning with mentorship from faculty from the University of Georgia life science departments and College of Education. The goals of the program are to develop undergraduates’ knowledge and skills in biology education research, encourage undergraduates to pursue doctoral study of biology teaching and learning, expand the diversity of the talent pool in biology education research, and contribute to the development of theory and knowledge about biology education in ways that can inform biology instruction.

RESEARCH AREAS
1) Benefits of collaborative learning in introductory biology
2) Instructional practices in undergraduate STEM courses
3) Mentoring of graduate researchers in life sciences
4) Self-advocacy in students with learning disabilities and/or ADHD
5) Using 3D animations to teach basic cellular processes
6) See UBERV2 REU website (uber.coe.uga.edu) for full list of projects
