Description

Achieving a productive and meaningful research program with undergraduates requires, at the minimum, exceptional people skills, vigilant QA/QC oversight, clear goals and objectives, and a network of colleagues to share ideas and address policies and issues unique to the research environment. In this workshop session, we invite you to share your successes (and failures!). We will identify the main obstacles to conducting research with undergraduate students, focusing on the perennial issues of funding, limited time, competing pressures of teaching and service. A starting point is to discuss the tremendous benefits of pulling students into research collaborations, whether occasionally when the opportunity arises, or as a programmatic aspect of your research. In a workshop style format we will address the following key areas: How do you make research with undergraduates really “count” for both the faculty and the student? How do you find time to work with undergrad researchers? How do you fund USM students who also need to work? How do you design projects that are doable within a semester or two? How do you ensure success? (and what is success?!)
