Tamara has been developing learning-through-research courses for the last 7 years after finishing her Ph.D. Her main goal is to design the learning experience where students (and life-long learners!) gradually develop research skills and increase their understanding of life sciences. Recently she co-founded Rhizome Association, which promotes the vision of future education, based on active learning, skills development and interdisciplinary projects in science, arts and civic engagement. The goal of Rhizome Association is to develop and implement educational programs and interdisciplinary projects, the first ones being focused on interdisciplinary life sciences. The first pilot program, Rhizome Foundations, is taking place in summer 2018, at the Mediterranean institute for life sciences, Split, Croatia.
