How research brings reality to classroom learning

Podcast Getting a jump-start on a career is enticing to any college student, undergraduate or graduate. Robert Marande, dean of the College of Science and Technology, explains how research provides many beneficial opportunities for students, including a chance to collaborate with faculty working within their own discipline as well as applying what they learn in the classroom to a real-life project — an experience and specified training that’s attractive to a potential employer.

Charles Brightbill, who earlier this fall won the Graduate Student Research Award at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting, will be among 39 students from the College of Science and Technology showcasing and presenting research on Friday, Dec. 7, in Hartline Science Center.

Brightbill, pursuing his master’s in exercise physiology, researched the comparison of physiological and metabolic data between Nintendo Wii free running vs. treadmill running.
