Dr. Karobi Moitra, Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professor of Molecular Biology, has received notice of a few achievements recently:
- She was chosen as a New Case Scholar for the Science Case Network (S.C.N.). She will work with her S.C.N. mentor, Dr. Clyde Herreid (S.U.N.Y., Buffalo), to develop a new case and pilot it in a course. With the travel award that came with her selection, she will then present her findings either at the joint SCN/BioQUEST Summer Workshop (June 2014) or the 2014 American Society of Microbiology Conference for Undergraduate Educators (May 2014). Further information about her particular case can be found in her S.C.N. profile.
- Dr. Moitra will also present a 1-hour concurrent session as well as a poster at the Lilly Conference on College and University Teaching and Learning, which will be held in Bethesda, MD this May 29-June 1. Her concurrent session is titled, “The Call of the Story: Innovative Approaches in STEM Classrooms,” and an overview is available on the conference website. Her poster is titled, “Teaching Strategies in the Sciences: The Ancient Art of Storytelling,” and an abstract is also available online.
- Lastly, Dr. Moitra will present a poster titled, “Let’s Hunt for Genes: Introduction of Genome Annotation into Undergraduate Research,” at the 2014 Council on Undergraduate Research Conference. This 16th national conference (“Creating the Citizens of Tomorrow: Undergraduate Research for All”) will be held in Washington, DC from June 28 – July 1, 2014.
