During the lunch, Dr. Kitty Liu from the chemistry department will discuss the outcomes of a project for which she received a dB-SERC course transformation award. She implemented interdisciplinary laboratory curriculum that integrates a biology lab course with two chemistry lab courses. The research-based chemistry laboratory courses offer undergraduate students real-world research experiences, and the highly interdisciplinary curriculum allows undergraduate students to connect the dots from different disciplines and can better prepare them for solving complex research challenges in future. In addition, graduate students who facilitate the chemistry labs will be involved in the development of the curriculum and mentoring undergraduates in their research. This provides graduate students with an opportunity that simulates research lab management. The purpose of the discussion is to discuss the assessment and outcomes of the project and receive feedback from faculty members.
