Today I am contacting the HEAcademy in an attempt to identify possible media outlets for an article which will be based on undergraduate student initiative. This article will incorporate answers from a questionnaire which we compiled in order to find out how iGEM undergraduates use their initiative for academic purposes outside of official curriculum.
The article intends to approach iGEM outreach from a perhaps, previously unconsidered angle. To inform the Higher education sector that iGEM provides a prime example of an academic model that brings out the best in terms of university teaching and student initiative.
This outreach exercise may well form the primary focus of our outreach activity, as it provides a much needed and original perspective to iGEM human practices.
Perhaps a presentation at the HEA conference will provide a chance for an iGEM participant to talk directly to the HE community, which would be a first for iGEM perhaps.
