Getting to Know UI Biology's Distinguished Emeritus Faculty
I have always found uncovering other people's stories of their past to be a tantalizing and engaging activity. This is the exact reason for why I wish to pursue learning about other people's back story for this project, namely people who have a considerable amount of experience in the field of biology. This project hopes to elucidate some of this history through interviews with several of the Professor Emeritus faculty here at the University of Iowa and to construct profile stories for each person interviewed. These profile stories will contain information about the persons past experience in the field of biology as well as strategies students could use to improve upon their learning of the subject, since basic biology courses are understandably challenging. There will also be an event following the blog posts held to allow students to meet face-to-face with some of the Emeritus faculty.
