Curriculum Archive

The Curriculum Archive features 85 peer-reviewed activities promoting active learning in undergraduate microbiology. The classroom activities and laboratory exercises were developed by faculty at diverse institutions and include inquiry-based field-tested materials, student- driven activities, case-based problems, and ideas for independent and/or research projects. All Curriculum Archive content is free, original, open access and peer-reviewed by the microbiology educator community. Content was published between 2000 and 2009 as part of MicrobeLibrary1.0.
