Scientific writing for undergraduate students
Scientific writing is an essential tool for our students, both for reaching a deeper understanding of the material they learn while in college, and for their future professional career. Creating as many opportunities as possible for them to practice in a context where they receive good support and feedback is a challenge when having big enrollment classes. How can we overcome this challenge?
How do we learn Biology? Can we use this knowledge to improve our students' success?
