Research in the Curriculum

 

One major goal is to establish an undergraduate curriculum which provides students the intellectual skills necessary to successfully engage in undergraduate research and inquiry.

The Distinction through Discovery Undergraduate Curriculum Grant Program provides seed funding for the incorporation of research and inquiry practices into undergraduate incorporating research and inquiry at the course, program, college, or university level upper-division curricula. The Distinction through Discovery Curriculum Committee encourages departments and programs to take a holistic, programmatic approach. Review criteria to be considered for full proposal invitations include:

  • Articulate how the curricular changes fit into the mission of the department(s) or program(s).
  • Explain how the curricular changes will result in high-quality research and inquiry experiences for the program(s) and undergraduate students.
  • Clearly demonstrate support for undergraduate scholarship.
  • Lead to the achievement of the Distinction through Discovery student learning outcomes 
The committee encourages faculty to integrate research-focused pedagogies and scaffold these skills throughout the undergraduate curriculum. 
 
Three categories were established to create a taxonomy for research in the curriculum.  
  1. research and inquiry exposure
  2. research and inquiry skill-building
  3. research and inquiry intensive
