Hi Everyone,
Just wanting to make you aware of a panel that includes many FUN members at SFN this year on how to engage undergrads in research.  Details below.  Please feel free to forward to any interested colleagues:

It's a Win-Win: Effectively Engaging Undergraduates in Research
Organizer/Moderator: Donita L Robinson, PhD
Date & Time: Monday, November 14, 2016 12pm - 2pm
Location: SDCC 30C
Track: Teaching Neuroscience

Panelists: Dorothy A Kozlowski, PhD; Claudio Da Cunha, Ph.D.; Shelly D Dickinson, PhD; Rueben A Gonzales, PhD; Hewlet G McFarlane, PhD; Matthew I Palmatier, PhD

Undergraduate students can be vital to your research team. Are you integrating them effectively? Undergraduates on your team are a win-win: students get lab experience, their graduate and postdoctoral mentors learn supervisory skills, and you advance your research agenda. We'll cover topics such as recruiting the right student, engaging undergrads as researchers, setting realistic expectations, maximizing a summer student and available resources to enhance the undergraduate research experience.
