Brother fuels Blugold's interest in genetics research

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

A summer internship at Boston Children’s Hospital gave Allie Welter something even more valuable than new research skills and a chance to add to her already impressive resume. It gave the Blugold an opportunity to intern in a research lab that studies Myotubular Myopathy, the same rare genetic disease that affects her 16-year-old brother, Andy. With tentative plans to someday work in or have her own genetics research lab, an internship at one of the largest pediatric medical centers in the United States was an incredible opportunity, Welter says. It also gave her a peek into what her future might someday look like if she continues to focus her studies on genetics research.

Future teachers learn to create global classrooms

Thursday, September 7, 2017

When Sam Rossmiller talks about his future teaching career, he describes classrooms filled with diverse learners who readily share their perspectives, ideas and cultural values. His hope, he says, is that through these kinds of global learning communities his students will better understand each other and themselves as they figure out their place in the world. Rossmiller, a broadfield social studies major, spent time this summer as an aide in Peruvian schools that incorporate the kinds of global curriculum that he says could work well in U.S. classrooms. Rossmiller is part of a multiyear international research project that aims to better prepare future teachers to build global learning communities.
