Category:
Research
Date:
Monday, January 13th 2014
Start Time:
2:15 PM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
104 Eddy Hall
Description:
Educational research has proven that, on average, undergraduates who are engaged in faculty-mentored research have higher academic performance, higher rates of retention, and higher rates of entry into graduate and professional programs. Undergraduate research is a great way to extend the learning experience beyond the basic theory that students receive in the classroom. Providing real-world applications related to a student's discipline enhances student learning and their retention of key disciplinary concepts. Whether you're interested in learning about opportunities to mentor undergraduates as assistants on your own research or incorporating research experiences for undergraduates in the classroom, this session is for you.
Goals and Target Audience:
Target Audience: 1) Faculty from any discipline who have opportunities for undergraduates to participate in their research programs. 2) Faculty from any discipline who wish to incorporate research into their classroom activities. Goals: 1) Pair faculty researchers with undergraduate assistants. 2) Highlight the basics of being a research mentor. 3) Brainstorm ways to bring research opportunities into your classroom.
