This workshop teaches non-scientist members of our community how to articulate developments in current research in biological or biochemical fields (with particular emphasis on evolutionary biology, genetics, or neuroscience) by reading scientific papers and reviewing how to classify the conclusions in scientific papers as neutral, contradictory, or consistent with the tenets of our Catholic faith.
Faculty sessions will be open to all faculty at Holy Apostles and its partnering schools beginning on Monday, September 13, at 3:00 pm Eastern and continuing every Monday through October 18.
Non-faculty sessions will be open to all members of our community (students – both current and prospective – alumni, donors, supporters, etc.) beginning on Thursday, September 16, at 7:00 pm Eastern and continuing every Thursday through October 7.
