Cothran and Holgado Represent SWOSU at GCSI
Dr. Andrea Holgado and Dr. Rickey Cothran of the SWOSU Department of Biological Sciences attended the National Academy’s Gulf Coast Summer Institute (GCSI) in Louisiana. The GCSI is one of six regional institutes on undergraduate education funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and designed to transform undergraduate science education using a method of course design that provides students with conceptual knowledge that “sticks” while playing to the strengths of university science educators. Participating were 30 faculty from 15 institutions in eight states, one United States territory and two countries. Holgado and Cothran are now recognized as National Academies Education Fellows in the Sciences.
