GRCC Professor Paul Krieger Presents on Biological Illustration of Marine Life

Paul Krieger, Professor of Biology, will be presenting on “My Biological Illustration Course at the Shoals Marine Lab” Thursday, March 24, 2011 from 3:00 – 4:00 PM in the Science Center Auditorium.

Paul’s presentation will cover his one-week intensive Biological Illustration course at the Shoals Marine Lab (SML) on Appledore island, Maine during summer 2010. Faculty will learn about the wonderful courses offered at SML, as well as the field of biological illustration as a career choice, and be able to share these opportunities with their students. In addition, faculty will learn about the conservation and sustainability efforts being practiced on the island.

Classroom faculty help advise students on learning opportunities and career choices. The courses offered at SML are very unique field experiences that often serve as the spark for students to become biology majors. Since SML is a well kept secret, faculty can spread the word about this fabulous place. Moreover, the career fields of medical and scientific illustration are not well known, so faculty can share more information about this with their students.

There will be an opportunity for questions and answers following the presentation.

By the end of this course, participants will:

  • explain the components of a biological illustration course.
  • understand more about scientific and medical illustration as a career choice for students
  • explain the mission of the Shoals Marine Lab (SML).
  • identify the conservation and sustainability practices at SML.
  • better understand what day to day life is like for students at SML.

This presentation is being offered to all full-time and part-time faculty.  Registration is not required, however there will be a sign-in sheet if you would like your attendance recorded.
