Undergraduate Research as Teaching Practice
Participants at the 2014 workshop Undergraduate Research: Engaging Students in the First Two Years were asked to define what "Undergraduate Research" means in the geosciences, particularly in the lower division.
How do we know whether or not students are getting what we want them to out of research experiences? There are a variety of mechanisms that can be used to evaluate the efficacy of pedagogical approaches and participants at the 2014 workshop developed helpful guidance for deciding on appropriate strategies for a particular context.
