Description/Abstract

Involving students in faculty research projects through directed independent studies and other co-curricular activities offers opportunities for students to learn the research process through hands-on activities. Our presentation details the benefits and pitfalls of supervising undergraduate research through independent studies outside of the traditional classroom environment from a multidisciplinary perspective, including experiences from Engineering and Political Science faculty. We provide guidelines developed through practice, including helpful tips on identifying and recruiting students, student direction, and making sure the process works for the professor as well as the student.
