How do students find their way into the laboratory? Integrating research experiences into lab courses, where students are tackling a problem related to a faculty member’s ongoing research, can introduce undergraduates to a world of career paths and opportunities as they come to understand research. Students learning research skills in the context of solving real research problems is the focus of work by Georgia Athletic Association Professor of Innovative Science Education Erin Dolan, which she will share tonight at THE ATHENS SCIENCE CAFÉ
Undergraduate Research at Scale: What is the Treatment and a C.U.R.E? Thursday, December 13th at 7 p.m. at Little King Shuffle Club. Free and open to the public.
Dr. Dolan will talk about her research on the impacts of undergraduate research experiences in science and national efforts to scale up these unique learning opportunities.
Helping students explore and decide on career paths is important for students everywhere - and not just in the sciences. Learn more about the C.U.R.E. initiative and research-related work in courses at UGA tonight at Little Kings.
