Strategies for Course Embedded Research
Tuesday 3:00pm-4:15pm Tennessee State University
Round Table Discussion
PRAJUKTI Bhattacharyya, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater
Two recent reports published by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS 2015, 2017) highlight the cognitive and affective benefits of embedding aspects of authentic research in undergraduate courses on a broad student population, especially in the STEM disciplines. This round table discussion will cover how various elements of research, such as formulating a research question, collecting, analyzing, and synthesizing data, and presenting results visually and/or orally can be implemented in classrooms.
