SIG Research Skills

To train students to become critical and independent academics, training research skills is an essential part of many curricula at Utrecht University. But how can you stimulate the development of these types of skills among students? What tools are available? How do you build research skills training into your course and curriculum? And how do you assess the development of research skills?  

These are just some of the questions that led to the creation of this SIG. By organizing regular interactive meetings we want to bring together teachers from different faculties to inform and inspire each other around the theme 'Research Skills'. We focus primarily on educational professionals involved in laboratory education, but of course other interested parties are also welcome to register.
