Have you thought about incorporating undergraduate research in your teaching? Join us for a 1.5 hr presentation and Q&A on how undergraduate research can advance intellectual and practical skills, personal and social responsibility, and integrative and applied learning (American Association of Colleges and Universities), especially for traditionally underrepresented students. We will touch upon a recent National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine report on the impact of undergraduate research experience, examine a case study from UNM Biology, and an existing UNM infrastructure for matching student with research project (Research Match). Those who already incorporate undergraduate research in their teaching are invited to share their experiences and implementation challenges. Future CTE workshop topics related to undergraduate research and teaching will be solicited from the audience.
Facilitated by Ara Winter (Post-doc, Biology Department), Amy P. Chen (Associate Director, Center for Teaching Excellence), Kiyoko Simmons (Honors College, Scholarship & Outreach Manager)
