LTER Undergraduate Education: Innovations and Cross-Site Opportunities

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Sites throughout the LTER network educate and/or employ undergraduate students in ecological research. This working group will provide a platform to share best practices, forge cross-site collaborations, and explore external funding sources to better serve students. Break-out group discussions will follow short presentations on the following topics: 1) engaging with LTER student alumni (i.e. providing opportunities for a second summer of research at another LTER site; tracking long-term impacts on STEM career and educational paths); 2) incorporating LTER sites/research into undergraduate course programming; and 3) creating an online clearinghouse for undergraduate opportunities at LTER sites, and partnering with student organizations like SEEDS to advertise these opportunities.
