I ask students a set of questions: ‘What is your goal? What have you done, and what do you need to do, to achieve it? What are your options?’ In science, large achievements are gained via multiple smaller milestones and early training. My goal is to encourage students to become independent lifelong learners. — Lauren Riters, Professor of Zoology
