Description/Abstract

Transformative Learning Through Community-Based Research

By connecting undergraduate research to local issues, you can transform your students, your classrooms, and your community. Community-based research (CBR) combines both undergraduate research and service-learning and has been shown to be a high-impact practice. We’ll delve into the origins of CBR, comparing and contrasting its principles and practices with traditional forms of research and service-learning. Powerful examples from a variety of institutions will illustrate what is involved in a successful project and lead you to think about the possibilities at your own institution and community. In addition to showcasing particular projects, we will consider a variety of strategies for getting started in CBR.

Introduction: Alvin Wang, Dean, The Burnett Honors College
