Dear All,

Following our 2nd annual SFDN conference, we, the SFDN board, would like to gather good practice among our members regarding how ‘students connect with researches and the institution’s research’ (Fung 2017)

Please find below the three questions of Dr Schatz interactive workshop during the Conference. We, the board, would be very interested in gathering your institutional approach in order to write a publication and ask Dr Dilly Fung to contribute.

1.Describe an example (of your institution) where this happens in a good manner

2.How can students learn (actively) the research culture of a discipline?

3.A throughline of research activities – do you have a generic proposal?

We would be very grateful if you could you send your answers to before March 29th
