Journal clubs are commonplace in graduate education, where they serve largely as a forum for encouraging graduate students to stay current with the primary literature. By contrast, journal clubs are rare in undergraduate education.
While it may not be so important for undergraduate students to keep up with the literature, journal clubs can be reconfigured to help meet the objectives of a quality undergraduate education. In this session, we will discuss both the pedagogical value and logistical considerations of running journal clubs in an undergraduate science course.
