Kristen Miller, Robby Nadler, and Christy Desmet Receive Writing Innovation Award

COUNCIL ON BASIC WRITING INNOVATION (INNY) AWARD- Dr. Kristen Miller

COUNCIL ON BASIC WRITING INNOVATION (INNY) AWARD

At the annual 4C (Conference on College Composition and Communication) meeting, Robby Nadler, Kristen Miller (Head of the Division of Biology), and Christy Desmet received the Council on Basic Writing's Award for Innovation for UGA's Science Writing Project. Only one award is given each year nationally. A collaboration between the UGA Writing Center, Division of Biology, First-year Composition, and the Writing Intensive Program, the Project involved a study of how advanced humanities writers respond to biology lab reports in order to isolate science writing knowledge gaps. The study resulted in enhanced training for our Writing Center consultants and a science writing handbook for Biology 1107L, authored by Robby as Assistant Director of the Writing Center. This semester, he also piloted the university’s first FYC class on science writing.

Undergraduate Research in Biology

Undergraduates majoring in biology have the opportunity to enhance their learning through direct participation in research and scholarship. At UGA, these opportunities enable undergraduates to participate in ground-breaking research, often as part of a team of graduate students and faculty. In fact, many students can earn academic credit while working under an experienced faculty mentor by taking BIOL 4960R or working directly with the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO). The Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellowship (BSURF) has been established to support undergraduate research opportunities in the Division of Biological Sciences within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. The Fellowship provides financial assistance to a student who has not had an opportunity to participate in a mentored research experience (paid, volunteer, or for credit) since matriculating to The University of Georgia.
