Program at 12:30 pm only. -- Join us on Thursday, February 23 for Teachers Talking.Making the most of work with undergraduate researchers: Reflections and suggestions. While working with undergraduates to advance our scholarship can be some of the most rewarding work we do, there is no single recipe for these interactions that assures a positive and productive experience for both faculty and student. Our more senior colleagues have discovered, perhaps more through trial and error than any other method, approaches that increase the likelihood of a positive experience. This session will offer examples of 'student researcher contracts', 'lab notebook guidelines', and 'suggestions for a positive research experience' that can be used as tools when working students on research projects. The discussion will surely yield other reflections and suggestions that may be used in your own future interactions with research students. Program at 12:30 pm. Free lunch at Three Crowns buffet, then meet in the Heritage Room.
