Pedagogy & Practice events are designed to facilitate collaboration and sharing of best practices across SHECP Member Schools. The focus of each event is chosen by consortium members and topic examples include how to prepare students for their summer internship, opportunities for undergraduate research, engaging program alumni as mentors for current students, and how students share their experience with the community, integrate the work into capstone courses or research, or reflect together when they return to campus.
