Paving the Way from School to Work: Core Graduate Education at Northern Arizona University
Abstract:The School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University requires three courses that provide all graduate students with a core education. The research development and methods course helps prepare graduate students to conduct high-quality research, the proseminar course improves students' ability to prepare and present scientific talks and posters, and the teaching practicum course provides students with opportunities to explore and practice traditional and alternative teaching techniques. Feedback from graduate students and faculty indicates that these courses help promote students' professional development.
