Translating Research into Teaching & Learning Workshop

At this lunch time workshop, participants will use one of their own research experiences and translate that into a teaching/learning opportunity (in a course/level of your choice). Please bring a lunch and a research experience (full project, publication, difficult day in the lab, how a research method was designed, etc.); you can use a literature example if you don’t have one of your own to use.
