A START-UP MANUAL FOR UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH STUDENTS IN MICROBIOLOGY
Active Learning from the Very Beginning
Keri Law, Rachel Lamb, and Min-Ken Liao

This start-up manual accomplishes two main goals: time effectiveness and education through active learning.  By having a research manual, the time professors spend on training students decreases.  Through active learning, the retention rate of students increases.  The manual is used before research activities begin and serves as an immediate reference throughout students’ time in lab.

In addition, Keri and Rachel are the main authors for this manual. They worked diligently at it, learned a great deal, and had fun doing so.
