Special Assignment:  This assignment (a short reflection) will provide a mechanism through which we will discuss in seminar and thus cross-pollinate the two trips of Week 5:  CONFOR and the Program Field Trip.  Please come to seminar with (as hard copy, i.e., on paper, word processed) the following observations about the trip you took:

  1. Identify 2 insights you gained on the trip that are relevant to your studies in MES (1-2 sentences each) .
  2. Mention two (other) new insights into the research process or ideas that you gained that might be applicable to the work you yourself will be doing in the program (e.g., for candidacy or for your thesis).

The first question relates to content, the second to content or process.
