Description/Abstract

Many undergraduates only become aware of research opportunities when they take their first research methods course. Unfortunately, many undergraduates approach research methods courses with dread and trepidation. How then can we as instructors of research methods courses help undergraduates overcome their fears and embrace undergraduate research experiences? Join us for a discussion of experiential learning techniques as well as a flipped classroom approach as we examine teaching strategies that enhance undergraduates’ engagement and enthusiasm for research. Learn how these forms of pedagogy can benefit the students as well as the institution and make for a more pleasurable teaching experience.
