Nature Nanotechnology makes career and educational series open access.
Since June 2014, Nature Nanotechnology published In the classroom, a series of articles on education in nanoscience. Lecturers and students discuss their ideas and experiences. Is learning nanoscience different from learning any other discipline? How important is the interdisciplinary character of nanoscience during learning? Does it make sense to study for a nanoscience degree? These are but a few of the questions that we ask our contributors to answer.
So far we’ve seen:
- Doug Natelson has provided a few pointers for lecturers in nanoscience
- C.N.R. Rao has discussed the situation of education in India
- James Dahlman and Huan Li have told us about their learning experience during their Ph.D. projects
- Nature Nanotechnology editor Ai Lin Chun explored the role of museums in teaching nanoscience
- Aravind Vijayaraghavan discussed the challenges and excitements of nanoscience outreach
- Ennio Tasciotti described an interactive video game app that helps children learn the concepts of nanomedicine
- Yi-Hsin Lin discussed how PhD students can enrich their curriculum by activities organized by professional societies
And in the latest issue, Emmanuel Dumont provides his views on technology transfer.
These articles are now open access, and free for anyone to read. One article will be released every month, and we’ll make sure that you get regular updates on the Naturejobs blog!
