Because the module is interactive and team-based, module participants need to attend all sessions and participate fully, including completing reading assignments outside of class and completing a team-based project. Participants should discuss time away from the lab with their research advisor in advance of the module. Anticipated absences, such as for scientific conferences, should be discussed with the module director.
