Panel Topic: Conservation Conversation
So, you want to save the last great wild places, work in an interdisciplinary environment that blends natural and social science content, be a team player, AND become a famous writer, speaker, scholar, and activist whose seminal work helps define the next generation of resource management? Conservation is all these things and more. Can we teach it effectively in an academic setting? Come hear what faculty, postdocs, and graduate students think we can - and can’t - do.
"Meet, Greet, Teach" offers graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with an interest in interdisciplinary, environmental education a chance to interact with faculty from across campus who are willing to share their enthusiasm and their experience. Over a glass of wine and light appetizers, attendees have a chance to mix and mingle, before settling down to a 30-minute "fast panel" of faculty, each delivering thought, and conversation, provoking answers. With time for both structured and social interaction, MGT presents an opportunity for everyone to have a say, make a contact, find a shared direction, and learn something new.
