  10. 800 images that can be downloaded and used in the classroom Animations for Presentations 70 Resources for creating curricula and classroom program The Library is a peer-reviewed collection of TEACHING AND LEARNING materials focused at the UNDERGRADUATE level.  This initiative is implemented through:  Publishing peer-reviewed teaching resources about the microbial world for undergraduate education  Advancing the ASM Curriculum Recommendations for undergraduate education  Promoting the scholarship of teaching and learning in microbiology education

  11. MicrobeLibrary contains: • Atlas-Protocol Collection The collection has two components: the Atlas and the Protocol. The Atlas includes a series of IMAGES that support the learning and use of a standard microbiology protocol.  The Protocol includes information pertinent to teaching undergraduate microbiology. • Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education (JMBE) Formerly Microbiology EducationPublished annually, JMBE publishes articles driven by outcomes-based cognitive research in student learning. The hallmark of the journal is to recognize educators who are at the forefront of cognitive research in microbiology education. • Focus on Microbiology EducationFOME is published four times a year and provides a venue for faculty to discuss issues in microbiology education. • Curriculum CollectionThe collection of curriculum resources provides classroom activities and laboratory exercises. • Visual CollectionThe collection of visual resources provides images, animations and video clippings for faculty and students to enhance their own understanding or classroom presentations about the microbial world. Visuals are annotated and include descriptions.

  12. Meet EcoSal, the new, continually updated Web resource based on the classic ASM Press publication Escherichia coli and Salmonella: Cellular and Molecular Biology. • Like its print-edition predecessors, EcoSal is a comprehensive, coherent archive of the ENTIRE corpus of knowledge on the enteric bacterial cell. EcoSal is comprised of SEVERAL HUNDRED MODULES of information and interpretation with links to cognate sites containing extensive tabular and pictorial presentations, as well as to active databases of primary research information. • As an ASM member through Global Outreach program you can benefit from this unmatched source FOR FREE!!!

  13. ASM Meetings Through its many member-supported Program Committees, ASM develops and executes ASM’s 5 annual large meetings, niche conferences, educational initiatives, and online professional development activities. The largest 2 meetings are ASM General Meeting and ICAAC.

  14. MicrobeWorld • HIGHLY INTERACTIVE website for science enthusiasts, students, teachers, parents, and the general public! • Offers a comprehensive resources section for educators, parents, and students that includes EXPERIMENTS, LESSON PLANS, and TOOLS for microbiology education. • Over 300 pages deep, the site contains introductory information about the science of microbiology, CAREER PROFILES, and INTERVIEWS with some of the world’s leading researchers! • Provides surprising and interesting facts about microbial life, and a comprehensive PHOTO GALLERY highlighting some of the most studied microorganisms.
