Attention, Juniors & Seniors! It’s Not Too Late to Gain Experience and Make a Difference
UW’s Academic Support Programs is offering a service-learning seminar titled “EDUC 401: Higher Education Tutoring and Mentorship” in Spring Quarter 2016. This weekly seminar introduces juniors and seniors to tutoring, mentoring, and teaching methodologies. Students apply what they learn in class through tutoring and mentoring new transfer, freshman, and sophomore students who are transitioning socially, culturally, and academically to the UW.
note: these are not UW courses, but they have been recommended by UW Marine Bio faculty. If you wish to transfer these credits to the UW, you must consult first with the UW study abroad office or Marine Biology Advising.
Summer Courses in Bermuda
The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) offers a suite of university-level summer courses, designed to immerse students in the study of marine science, with a program of coursework and research that is unique in marine science education.
All of us at UW Marine Bio know that ‘people’ are a critical part of the marine environment. Consider this course to look into socio-environmental data.
