Please see below for the 2012-2013 Biology Scholars Capstone pre-assignment and agenda. As you know, the Capstone is held just prior to the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE). To facilitate networking at the  conference, we have also provided a list of the Scholars who have registered for ASMCUE.


Capstone Pre-Assignment (Due: May 3rd):

1.      -  Read the publication, “Creating a Faculty Culture of Student Success”:

2.      -  Create a new page on your individual wiki page titled, “Capstone.” Post to this page:

a.       An abstract of your of your journey since leaving the training Institute last summer (up to 300 words).  Include what has worked well, what has been a challenge and what you still hope to accomplish as a Biology Scholar Alum;

b.      A table or a figure that helps to illustrate your past year’s work; and

c.       1-3 references that have informed your past year’s work

 Once you are done, email the listserv with a link to your completed "Capstone" page.

3.       - Familiarize yourself with your institution’s mission statement and/or goals. Bring 20 hardcopies of this information to share with other Scholars at the Capstone.
