MEDS 293 - Special Topics in Biology

Semester Offered: Fall
0.5 to 1 unit(s)
A variety of current and timely topics in Biology is considered by these intensive mentored experiences. Each of these involves closely mentored work in small groups of students around a key topic in biology. A variety of formats is used, including field experiences, field trips, different types of media and different approaches. Topics and instructors vary each semester. Kathleen Sussman.

b) Getting the Word Out. (0.5 or 1 unit, ungraded) (Same as BIOL 293 ) This intensive focuses on communicating about biology research and concepts for different non-science audiences using blogs, podcasts and other current media. We work as a media team developing a series of articles relevant to human impacts, including climate change, on biological organisms and systems. We visit a large media organization and conduct video interviews as well as more traditional literature- based research. Kathleen Susman.
