In this week’s meeting, we started off with logistics of the lab. We talked about payroll updates, building access, and keys for the lab. We also caught up with the undergrad assistants, asking what project they were working on and any questions that they had.
We mostly discussed the current experiment about biology education across the nation. Dr. Long explained the current experiment being worked on in this lab, including the history of how it this project was started. Following this explanation, everyone discussed the state of biology education as a whole, and at Michigan State, expressing their own opinions, and asking many questions about this current topic.
Next week (2/11/15) we will discuss the REAL and REESE proposals.
