On the Cutting Edge has sponsored two workshops dealing with Undergraduate Research, one focused on Upper Division Courses, Independent Study, and REU's and the other on Research in the First Two Years.
This pedagogic module establishes the What, Why, and How of conducting research with undergraduates in a variety of contexts.
As a part of the workshop on Supporting Student Success, the SAGE 2YC program developed a set of web pages focused on the particular opportunities and concerns of implementing student research with students at or from two-year colleges.
Authentic research opportunities, whether in our outside of class, can be a very important part of a liberal arts education. Several FaCE projects focused on undergraduate research from a number of different angles including involving student in designing and implementing research projects, exploring best practices for mentoring student researchers, and protecting human subjects in student research projects.
