Nutrition education research opportunity

Are you looking for a honors research project where you can learn new technologies, engage in curriculum design and evaluation, and gain leadership and teaching experience?

I am looking for honors students to serve as research/teaching assistants during Fall 2016 and Spring 2017. All projects are scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) research projects about self-efficacy (confidence in skills) in teaching nutrition in the community. Projects will involve designing, implementing, and evaluating nutrition education training tools, using emerging technologies (e.g. 360-degree virtual reality videos) as part of a nutrition education service-learning course. No previous teaching experience needed – we will train you!

Students must be in one of the university or college honors programs (e.g. CALS Honors, Biology Honors, or University Honors) to participate in this two-semester research/teaching experience.

For more information, contact Dr. Natalie Cooke at nkcooke@ncsu.edu. Please attach a resume/CV and a short example of writing.
