For my students to succeed at the next level, whether it's in graduate school or in a career, I have structured my courses so that my students think scientifically while taking the time to observe and be curious about what is going on in and around them. I have fostered this training by providing students with the opportunity to collaborate outside of the classroom on a forensic biology project that examines the use of plant pollen as an investigative tool.
Increasing the number of student-faculty collaborative research and creative projects like mine is something Methodist is striving to do. Engaging students in their course work through these projects creates an environment in which students are empowered by the curriculum. Other projects include work in the sciences and social sciences, as well as the fine arts and humanities. Before graduating, every student should have the opportunity to take part in undergraduate research or a creative project with a member of the faculty.
