Description/Abstract

Among the greatest challenges undergraduate research mentors face is the variability of skills displayed by a diverse student population. One approach to addressing this problem is a “three-stage” course sequence that allows students to systematically advance through the independent research experience. This structural approach takes the student from the conceptualization of a research idea through to the completed manuscript. With clear goals, outcomes, and expectations for each stage, the mentor is able to address the students’ academic gaps within this clearly defined structure. This process nurtures the students to develop their full potential, transforming them from “learner” to “chrysalis-scientist.”
