Description/Abstract

What skills do all undergraduates need to be effective researchers? How can programs help students be more comfortable with research? How can we reduce the work load of faculty by better preparing students? This workshop will review several models that introduce students to research through formal coursework prior to starting a research experience. This includes a semester-long course, a short peer mentor led course, and a week-long faculty led course. These models are currently being used at UCF through NSF funding in collaboration with University of Alabama and Washington State University.
