RMB 2006 Participants

The Research in Marine Biology class is built on the principle that learning is enhanced when knowledge is viewed as something that is socially constructed by a group rather than as a thing to be memorized, following the model of what happens in scientific investigations. The class is a learning community, where professors, teaching assistants and participants interact equally, each taking lead roles throughout the course. Students who profit most from the course are typically junior and senior undergraduates or recent graduates, 1st or 2nd year graduate students. Faculty look forward to learning as much from class participants as they do from the faculty and teaching assistants.
