Hey there folks! Feb 2 is getting close, and we're excited for the 2015 WMS Elective class!
Attached are guidelines for your short and sweet student presentation portion of the course. This is always a fun way to share your knowledge with the group, enjoyed by students and faculty alike. Please continue to sign-up or adjust your topics on the google doc link below (Steph's email from earlier today).See you all soon!
Student Presentation Guidelines
Part of the WMS Elective in Wilderness and Environmental Medicine is the required
Student Presentation. This portion allows students to become instructors. Each of you
brings unique skills and knowledge to the course. The Student Presentation is your
opportunity to share you knowledge or choose a new topic to investigate and then share
your knowledge with your new Wilderness Medicine Colleagues. The goal is to have 3
student presentations per day. When you choose your topic, please add it to the Google
spreadsheet to that others can see what’s been taken.
