Experiential learning: Notre Dame professor Joanna Larson brings the classroom to Costa Rica


Students and Professor Joanna Larson at Las Cruces Biological Station

The Notre Dame undergraduate experience brings students in touch with their field of study both in the classroom and far beyond South Bend, Indiana. Assistant Professor of the Practice Joanna Larson embodies that idea within the Department of Biological Sciences by immersing students in hands-on learning. Listen as they share what they’re learning, on campus in the lab … and in the jungles of Costa Rica.

This episode of the NDWorks Podcast was hosted by Jenna Liberto and edited by Michael Wiens with original music by Alex Mansour.

Thanks to the University of Notre Dame College of Science. Professor Larson’s Costa Rica trip was sponsored by the Department of Biological Sciences and the Glynn Family Honors Program.
