Education Achievements

New IGERT Summer Immersion course

The new course IGERT Summer Immersion was taught during the Summer 2010 session over a three-week period, including activities in Idaho and Costa Rica. During the course students and faculty engaged in team building exercises, participated in a conflict resolution seminar and students went through an orientation regarding project goals and expectations. Students and faculty also toured research sites, met with stakeholders and held regular meetings to discuss interdisciplinary and disciplinary research plans and scientific literature. The course was an excellent introduction to the project and will be taught again in August 2011 for a new cohort of IGERT students.
