The Inaugural Katharine E. Welsh Symposium
Celebrating the R3 Center for Innovation in Science Education (R3ISE), April 23, 2018
Innovation in science begins with education. The R3 Graduate Science Initiative forms a focal point for innovation in scientific training at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
At the core of the new R3ISE Center for Innovation in Science Education, R3 stands for Rigor, Responsibility and Reproducibility in scientific practice.
View the Agenda for the Inaugural Katharine E. Welsh Symposium, held on Monday, April 23, 2018
The Center was made possible through a very generous donation by the Katharine E. Welsh Foundation and supports several core missions:
- It is home to the JHSPH’s R3 Graduate Science Initiative.
- It provides scholarships for R3 graduate students, the Katharine E. Welsh Scholars.
- It will host the Katharine E. Welsh distinguished lecture series.
- And it will be a hub for dialogue, collaboration and educational research across the disciplines.
The R3 Initiative is designed to put the "Ph" back into the PhD of doctoral science education: Its mission is to provide graduate students with critical thinking and creative problem solving skills, and enhances students' capacities to communicate, view science in a broader context and through the lens of social responsibility.
In the early 20th century, Johns Hopkins provided the academic model that led to modern medicine. Now in the early 21st century, the R3 Center for Innovation in Science Education (R3ISE) will position the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, to catalyze the improvement of graduate scientific education and influence the training of scientists for generations to come.
