Jump in for Success: Getting into Research Early

University Center Banquet Room
Ever wanted to do research but didn't know how to get started? If you're a freshman, sophomore or new transfer student, our workshop for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors will help you find the tools you need.

Topics include: how research works, how to ask professors to join their labs, your roadmap to success, and how learning happens. There will also be two guest speakers Dr. Jacquelyn Bolman (HSU, INRSEP, SACNAS, the STEM center) and Dr. Jeanne Narum (Washington D.C., Learning Spaces Collaboratory) and the opportunity to network with current STEM research students.

Space is limited, so sign up below.

Biological Sciences Seminar Series

HSU Campus
All are welcome to our first seminar speaker event of the fall semester. Dr. Jeanne Narum with The Learning Spaces Collaboratory in Washington D.C. will present, "Rumors and Ideas from the Halls of NSF."

As founding principal of the Learning Spaces Collaboratory (LSC), since 2010, Jeanne Narum’s professional focus is on promoting best practices in visioning, planning, and assessing physical spaces serving 21st century undergraduate learners and learning communities. Her leadership within the LSC reflects more than two decades engaging with academics and architects involved in integrated planning of the undergraduate learning
environment—physical, intellectual, and social. Her presentation will focus on the emerging and significant body of education research, validated across disciplinary communities about how to engage, inspire, and motivate 21st century learners in STEM fields. “Society’s most important problems are usually ill-defined in some way. These are the kinds of problems students will have to solve after they graduate. Students who have scant experience with ill-defined problems during their undergraduate education may be poorly prepared to grapple with the most significant problems in their fields.” Dr. Narum will discuss one of the 21st century realities that must be recognized by those responsible for the learning experience: the depth and breadth of documented evidence across disciplinary fields, from campuses of different sizes, missions, and circumstances that research-based approaches enhance student motivation, persistence, and achievement.
