Getting Meaningful Research Experience in the Time of COVID-19

Simply having a research experience is only the first step. The skills, knowledge, and relationships that you gain from that experience is what matters in the end. With many programs not offering research experiences this summer, how can you still get the benefits of a research experience? This series will give you resources, activities, and strategies to consider for remote summer research opportunities.

Webinar participants will:

  • Discuss the current landscape of research
  • Identify practical skills for finding remote research opportunities
  • Review essential skills from the research experience
  • Explore techniques for navigating the difficult research landscape
