Teachers Talking - Seeing the Big Picture of our HHMI Award

Monday, March 22, 2010 (Around 5 years ago)

Eighteen months ago, Gustavus received its first grant award from the Howard Hughes Medical Institutes. This $1M has served as a catalyst for transforming first- and second-year student education in the biological sciences. The award is enabling the transformation of student learning in introductory courses, of undergraduate research, of student and faculty leadership, of space and programs, and of partnerships with K-12 teachers in the state. Join us on 13 April at 11:30 or 12:30 (Heritage Room) to hear a panel of colleagues (Brenda Kelly, Brandy Russell, Scott Bur, Jeff Dahlseid, Bob Weisenfeld, and Mary Strey) highlight the programs and answer your questions. Faculty from all disciplines are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Faculty from all disciplines are welcome and encouraged to attend. Free lunch. Good conversation.
