Undergraduate research is not only beneficial to the university and community for all the new ideas it brings to light, but plays an important role in student development.
Studies have shown that students who are involved in research as undergraduates are proficient in:
- Critical thinking
- Problem solving
There have been many studies conducted on the best ways to get students involved in research in order to gain these benefits, most of which are based around increasing awareness.
My research is focused on the impact of bringing research into the classroom and requiring students to participate. Will this increase student interest in participating in future undergraduate research?
