Presenter(s): Giovanna Cucciniello (Director of Education Abroad, Hunter)
In this webinar, faculty panelists Josh Plotnik (Hunter/GC, Psychology), Jessica Rothman (Hunter/GC, Anthropology), and Sheldon Skaggs (Bronx CC, Chemistry) will share how they have engaged students in their research abroad, from mentorship of students through international fieldwork leading to co-authorship, to creating study abroad programs that expose undergraduates to research in a global context. They will discuss the conditions under which they envision being able to restart these efforts, and will explore the impact of these opportunities with students and alumni. [Details...]
