Talking Research and Learning with Dr. Laura Stone and Dr. Richard Hovey / October 24th, 2013

McGill’s Faculty of Dentistry is a dynamic and diverse environment where dental students, graduate students, professors, dentists, specialists, researchers and staff all interact. It is, in countless ways, a wonderful example of a space where collaborations occur among colleagues and across disciplines. Dr. Laura Stone and Dr. Richard Hovey are bringing this interdisciplinary spirit to research as they team up to offer a new model of research seminars to graduate students in the Faculty this year. I met with them earlier this fall to discuss the meaning of learning, of collaboration as well as the evolution of their own thinking regarding interdisciplinary work as researchers.
