Teaching in 10 Podcast

With Dr. Sarah Montgomery


Get ready to be inspired as you listen to the undergraduate research experience of UNI student Tristen Prouse who recently traveled to present at a conference in New York City with Dr. Lisa Jepsen of the College of Business. Together Lisa & Tristen share about their collaboration and adventures in the latest episode of Teaching in 10 titled, “Teaching Outside of the Classroom: The Impact of Undergraduate Research.” Lisa is the Robert James Waller Professor of Economics in the College of Business at the University of Northern Iowa. She is also an Administrative Fellow in the Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning at UNI. Tristen is an Economics major with a Legal Studies minor. 

In this episode Tristen & Lisa discuss how Tristen’s research on vaccine access and inequalities in the pandemic response and health care access around the world started with an idea related to Lisa’s Law & Economics course. The project has now become Tristen’s Honors Thesis and resulted in her earning a College of Business Undergraduate Research Award for conference presentations. 

Through lively stories and practical examples Tristen & Lisa share how their collaboration and conference travels have fueled them both professionally and personally!
