Freshman Research Initiative- research methods Homework #7
Dr. Reichler Fall 2009

Two different guest lecturers will speak to class on October 26 and 27.  In addition to listening to their lecture, I want you to take an active role in these lectures by asking questions of our guest lecturers.  It is difficult to ask questions when you do not know what they will present.  So for homework #7, I am asking you to develop three questions you might ask this presenter.  Below is a link to some background information on the speaker that you can use to develop your questions.  You are free to do some additional research about them, such as search for their publications in a database or other search engines.

The guest for M 10/26 will be Sarah Adai:  She works as a technical writer at Applied Biosystems.  (Background Info)

The guest for T 10/27 will be Dr. Stephen Stout:  He is a patent Attorney working at Vinson & Elkins LLP.  (Background Info)

Your three questions are due the day of the speaker's lecture.  Your assignment should include your name and class time.  Next put the name of the speaker you have developed the questions for.  Then include your three questions.  These homework assignments must be printed.  (Handwritten assignments will not be accepted.)

Homework #7 is due at the end of lecture on M 10/26 or T 10/27.
