How to get Started Workshop a Success!
OURI hosted two workshops last Friday on “How to get Started” in undergraduate research. Over 40 students in attendance learned how to identify research questions and worked on small interactive projects.
Benefits for Faculty participating in Undergraduate Research and Inquiry
Students are not the only beneficiaries of involvement in undergraduate research and inquiry; benefits to faculty have also been observed. These include enhanced mentoring and teaching, enhanced satisfaction with their career and personal development, achieved scholarly and research outcomes (e.g. presentations and publications), and integrated teaching and scholarship. Faculty who were themselves engage in similar activities as undergraduates identify the experience as being transformational for their careers.
