dc.description.abstractAlthough graduate science education does an excellent job training students in the technical and career aspects of science, there is too little attention paid to teaching the wisdom of "good" science that encourages riskier path-breaking work over fluff, with the highest goal of research being discovery rather than scholarly publication. In an attempt to help fill this gap, I interviewed fifteen senior life scientists over the past year. These interviews were filmed and edited into four topic videos: The Allure of Science, I-ow to Do Good Science, On Mentorship, and Where Science Is Headed. Geared towards graduate students in the life sciences, these videos are designed to start a conversation between students and their advisors on important but currently ignored aspects of doing good science.en_US
