Professional Development for Educators

Transforming your students into champions for nature and science.

For College and University-level educators:


The Biological Collections Ecology and Evolution Network – fostering undergraduate scientific exploration using natural history specimen data.
BCEENET is a community of undergraduate educators, natural history curators, education experts, and data experts who support the development and implementation of Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) in ecology and evolution, using data from digitized natural history collections (dNHCs). Undergraduate research increases student engagement, retention, and long-term success and is essential for building a scientifically literate and engaged workforce, and embedding research experiences in courses is especially important for underrepresented students who may experience barriers to accessing traditional research experiences.
