Description/Abstract

Many students and faculty are familiar with traditional approaches to undergraduate research. However, integrating other types of experiential learning strategies into research experiences can be exceptionally challenging but extremely rewarding for undergraduate scholars thereby cultivating additional skills and expertise. Using two select case studies from different disciplines, we examine how study abroad and community service opportunities can be incorporated into research experiences enriching the undergraduates’ learning opportunities. We consider the benefits and advantages as well as the limitations of such projects. We discuss practical steps to support students engaged in these multifaceted research experiences.
