A popular tool in academia to encourage scholarship is the ‘lunch and learn,’ where faculty members come together during their lunch hour to share with one another projects they are working on and offer support and suggestions to each other.


This webinar series is intended to recreate the collegial feel of the lunch and learn where nursing faculty come together to dialogue and discuss methodologies, successes and challenges they encounter while working on a scholarship project.  Each session will include an overview of the presenter’s current project, and how the particular Lunch and Learn’s theme was/is being addressed in that project. 


Presented by the CASN Research and Scholarship Committee, and moderated by the CASN Pat Griffin Scholars, this series of webinars is intended to serve as inspiration and a networking opportunity for participants.
