Description/Abstract

Introducing research into the curriculum is important for developing empirically informed practitioners and future researchers. Opportunities for undergraduate research can be challenging due to limited funding, resources, and knowing when undergraduates are prepared. This presentation will provide examples of providing opportunities in class assignments that capitalize on applied research projects with partner organizations. Presenters will highlight specific assignment examples, which include a victim advocacy campaign project and a forensic psychology applied research project examining criminal case files. Afterward, we will incite questions and discussion on additional ways to promote integration of research and pedagogical methods for training prospective science-practitioners.
