Description/Abstract

Many disciplines value mastery of relatively specific methods and analyses, whereas many complex questions can only be addressed by integrating research approaches from multiple disciplines. How then do faculty help undergraduates appreciate interdisciplinary research while facilitating mastery of discipline specific skills? This interactive workshop explores these questions and helps participants devise a process to develop a meaningful undergraduate research experience that bridges disciplines and honors discipline-specific boundaries. Utilizing a case study spanning biology and psychology, participants will work to deconstruct interdisciplinary research practices and identify an underlying process for developing interdisciplinary research plans for undergraduate scholars.
