Nothing beats face-to-face collaboration!
The Math and Science Ed Ph.D. program’s annual retreat is an investment that yields high returns.
Each fall, all students and faculty in the program hold an annual retreat on the Tri-Cities campus. While teleconferencing and other technologies allow all program members a chance to connect on a regular basis, this retreat gives a yearly chance to reconnect in a face-to-face environment.
Conversations and work at the retreat support future collaborations and often lead to joint publications and presentations. The retreat also provides opportunities for self-reflection and peer feedback, enhancement of the strong learning community that exists inside the program, and input on the content and focus of the program.
