Pedagogy

Education is the key that unlocks discovery, innovation, and knowledge. In the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology, we seek to develop the next generation of critical thinkers and world problem-solvers through experiential learning and evidenced-based teaching. Our Curriculum-Based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE) courses provide authentic, hands-on research, and in our classrooms, we strive to continuously improve the student experience through disciplined-based education research and the practice of the science of teaching.
