Report of a Conference on Research at the Undergraduate Level.
Powers, Jack W.; Black, David G., Jr.
Early involvement in research with actively participating faculty should not only speed and enhance the learning process, but also motivate students toward science. To gain firsthand information on how this concept works in actual practice, a conference on Research at the Undergraduate Level was held. All 16 participants were from universities with active undergraduate research programs. Among the themes developed for the report were the following: (1) Research as a Teaching Technique; (2) What is a Good Undergraduate Research Problem; (3) What Assistance is Needed for the Faculty Member; (4) The Best Time for Undergraduate Research; (5) Managing a Research Program; (6) Getting Students Involved in Research; (7) A Productive Research Environment; (8) Getting Inactive Faculty Back Into Research; (9) What Results Can be Expected from Undergraduate Research; (10) The Cost of Research; and (11) What Does the Future Hold?
