Collaborating with undergraduates on research and creative activities can be rewarding yet time-consuming. In this workshop, we will discuss best practices in supervising undergraduate researchers. In particular, we will examine the following questions:
Why should I conduct research with undergraduates?
How can I be a good mentor to my undergraduate researchers?
How can I get publications and presentations with undergraduate researchers?
What kind of funding is available for undergraduate research?
How can I make the process less time-consuming for myself?
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) is proud to sponsor a reception to honor undergraduate students who have participated in scholarship and creative activities during the 2008-2009 school year. At this reception, students and their faculty mentors will be recognized for their hard work over the past year. A program guide will be provided listing all undergraduate scholars and their faculty mentors from the past year. In addition, all students and their mentors will receive a certificate for their achievement. Refreshments will be provided.
