Rethinking Research Collaboration: Transformative Experiences of Faculty and Students Engaged in Undergraduate Research LearningSociety for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) Annual Conference (2017)
Research habits of reflective and analytic thinking are developed through applied practice and guided mentorship.
Institutions that support undergraduate research opportunities find that research experiences help undergraduates
connect theory to practice, can increase student self-efficacy and motivation, and enhance professional competencies.
The Centre for Undergraduate Research Learning at Huron University College offers opportunities for undergraduate students enrolled in the arts and social sciences to engage with faculty members to complete independent research projects.
This presentation will discuss four different undergraduate research projects completed during the 2016-2017 academic year. Using a qualitative multiple-case study approach, researchers examined the decisions that the students and their faculty mentors made during the course of each undergraduate research project. Results provide insight into the factors that influence the decisions students make when undertaking independent research projects and the role of institutions in supporting and fostering undergraduate research opportunities for liberal arts students.
