Professional Development

The techniques that ultimately make a good professor are also essential to a variety of other pursuits.  Professional development activities include three classes of workshops – the first intended to develop teaching skills and the others intended to develop scientific skills – as well as a student-invited seminar speaker series.  All three initiatives provide NGG members with the opportunity to learn the tricks of the scientific trade from experienced researchers, both from UPenn and elsewhere, as well as to further develop essential scientific skill sets, such as coordinating a speaker’s visit.
