Lakeland biochemistry professor headed back to class
Academics - posted on 6/8/2006
Jeff Schwehm, assistant professor of biochemistry at Lakeland, has received a Dorothy and Moses Passer Award to attend a course on plant genomics and bioinformatics in New York City this August.
The award, which comes from the Division of Chemical Education of the American Chemical Society, will make it possible for Schwehm to attend this course, which is part of the National Science Foundation's Chautauqua Short Courses for College Teachers series.
This annual series of forums allows scholars at the frontiers of various sciences meet intensively for several days with undergraduate college teachers of science. The series is held at colleges and universities throughout the United States as well as at selected special sites.
These forums provide an opportunity for invited scholars to communicate new knowledge, concepts and techniques directly to college teachers in ways which are immediately beneficial to their teaching.
The primary aim is to enable undergraduate teachers in the sciences to keep their teaching current with respect to both content and pedagogy.
