dc.description.abstractUndergraduate biology instructors face the challenge of balancing critical thinking procedures with biology content (1). Evidence has revealed that directed “cookbook” laboratory exercises alone severely limit opportunities to interpret data and practice higher-order thinking (2, 3). However, concurrently learning complex biological concepts and practicing higher-order thinking, such as inquiry laboratory activities, is thought to enhance comprehension of biological concepts (4, 5). Course-based undergraduate research experiences, or CUREs, have become a popular method of instruction because they provide access to research experience for all students (6–8). However, financial barriers, increased time investment, lack of institutional support, and the narrow scope of topics and laboratory skills gained in CUREs relative to traditional laboratory activities can present challenges for laboratory instructors who desire to provide a robust curriculum (5, 9). Ideally, laboratory curricula include learning outcomes for students to gain a diversity of laboratory skills, reinforce biology concepts, practice higher-order thinking, and develop an understanding of the research process.en_US
