This Month on the Blog: A Community of Learners

Sep 20, 2019 - 07:05 PM

From our Blog Editor, Sasha Mushegian: 

This fall, we’d like to hear your stories about learning. How did you learn a skill or concept that you needed to do the science you wanted to do? What winding paths has your learning taken, and what approaches and resources helped you? How do you learn completely new things among all the other responsibilities and needs you have as a scientist and human? If you are an educator: is there a particular curriculum or teaching approach that allowed your students to master a skill in a way you’re proud of? And what kinds of collaborative skill-sharing processes have you taken part in as a scientist in a community of learners?

Send your stories of everyday learning, as well as everyday creativity and everyday failure, to blog@evolutionsociety.org. Read more on the blog.
