Engaging Students as Scholars: Incorporating Undergraduate Research into Your Course
Wednesday, February 9th, 2022 | 3:30 p.m. - 4:45 p.m.
Event Type: Webinar
Facilitators: Tris Utschig, Amy Buddie, Cameron Greensmith, and Jason Rhodes
Undergraduate research (UR) is a high-impact educational practice that leads to deep, meaningful learning for students (Kuh, 2008). This workshop will focus on how faculty can engage students by mentoring them to be undergraduate researchers, how to work with teams of researchers, and how to embed meaningful UR experiences into your courses so that they can be counted as part of the It's About Engagement (IAE) initiative. In particular, findings and resources developed from last year's two IAE Undergraduate Research Faculty Learning Communities studying UR in the context of the pandemic and via a case study of the KSU Food Forest will be incorporated into the session so that you can benefit from their work in your own planning.
