Microbiologist investigate the fascinating world of organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye. Although known by many different titles, a microbiologist is a scientist who studies living organisms and infectious agents many of which can only be seen with a microscope. They also study the interaction of microorganisms with people. Everyday microbiologists around the world explore, investigate and discover how these organisms, called microbes exist and affect our lives. As a microbiologist, you will work with many other scientists and have a vast range of opportunities. Microbiologists work in almost every industry and have many different responsibilities. The following is a partial list of overlapping roles that you may have. You will collaborate with many other scientists. Depending on your specific situation, you may perform more than one function or role. What are my options?
Hands-on Microbe Activities microbiology for School teachers. Hands on activities for Students reassurance that these are safe for handling by children of the age group they teach and safe for the environment. http://www.waksmanfoundation.org/labs.html
Extractions: Hands on Activities for Students This database represents a collection of laboratory exercises, developed by grantees of the Foundation, which are intended to show school teachers how microorganisms may be used for science teaching in American high schools, middle schools or, in a few instances, elementary schools. Many have been used and field tested over a number of years. All material received from an individual source (school, university, scientific society) is presented in a single directory as one or several files, or in some instances as a link to a website in which the laboratory exercises are described. The Foundation believes that, given the excellence of the scientists and teachers who have cooperated to develop the various exercises presented here, most will prove to be valuable in conveying both basic principles of scientific research and something about the microbial world. Teachers adapting any of these exercises for use as hands-on activities in their classes, if actual microbes are involved, may need reassurance that these are safe for handling by children of the age group they teach and safe for the environment. The needed reassurance can be found in "Micro-Organisms for Education," by H. T. Ewald et al. at http://www.science-projects.com/safemicrobes.htm

Extractions: Levels of organization is a key concept in the study of biology. Some biologists take complex systems apart to understand their simpler components more fully. Others are interested in how simpler components interact to produce new properties at more complex levels of organization. The content of this workshop focuses on these levels of organization by examining animal behavior, the nervous system, neurotransmitters, hormones and genes and their regulators. Reproduction and Development: This hands-on workshop explores the topics of reproduction and development across kingdoms and integrates various technologies and teaching strategies with National Science Education Standards. Some of the laboratory activities include: colony transformation of E. coli with Bio-Rad pGLO plasmid and purification of green fluorescent protein; isolation of sporozoans in earthworms; embryological development of zebrafish; and clay modeling of developmental patterns. Participants will also explore bioethics, identify difficult concepts, and develop ways to make learning easier with the technologies present. Innovative teaching methods will make learning biology more fun and understandable for students.

Extractions: Contact Information INTRODUCTION Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, their activities, and applications. Although small in size, microorganisms play an enormous role in many areas of society including human health and disease, food, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, agriculture, and the environment. As a result of the widespread importance and application of microbiology, career opportunities are almost limitless. There are more microbiologists than any other type of biologist and the American Society for Microbiology is the largest scientific society in the world. The Microbiology Department, located in the Cowley Hall of Science, supports undergraduate and graduate programs in microbiology. Microbiology is the newest department at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, although the major has been in existence since 1984 and the program has been recognized by the University of Wisconsin System as a Center of Excellence since 1988. The program is nationally known for excellence in undergraduate education and emphasizes laboratory competence in microbiology and related disciplines. A microbiology major proves a foundation for the abundant employment opportunities in microbiology and is also excellent preparation for graduate school or professional schools. Microbiology is cited as the major that best prepares pre-med students for the rigors of medical school.
Extractions: Ohio Northern University The fourth ASM Undergraduate Microbiology Education Conference was held May 2 to 4 at Broward Community College and Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. One hundred and fifty microbiology educators from 38 U.S. states and territories and 3 other countries actively participated in outlining a core curriculum shared by all introductory microbiology labs (presented in the accompanying article) and developing lab activities that integrated the core concepts. Lab activities will be field tested and revised before being made available on ASM's Web page. In addition, conference participants unanimously agreed that a laboratory be required for every introductory microbiology course. Participants were able to review new teaching materials, books, CDs, and software during a session on "What's New in Microbiology and Teaching Resources" and also discussed posters on the themes of (i) classroom testing of active learning strategies; (ii) creative, investigative, and cooperative lab activities; and (iii) teaching ideas to share.

Extractions: Jeff Pommerville and Maria Harper Marinick, Maricopa Community Colleges, Tempe, AZ Over the past several years there has been increasing attention focused on a paradigm shift in undergraduate science education and microbiology education. This shift has been from a teacher-centered environment where information is "delivered" to students to a learner-centered environment in which students are "active" learners. In this first session, we will define an active learning environment. We will then explore the following issues: the role of the teacher, fostering a safe learning environment, setting and meeting classroom goals, and facilitating student participation. After attending this session, participants will be able to: 1) Describe the critical factors that contribute to a successful active learning environment; and 2) Design learning opportunities that promote student active engagement.
