Innovative Community College Teaching Methods: Research through the Curriculum.
Stuber, Donna
This paper reports on a small college's efforts to interest more psychology majors in research projects and to help all students enrolled in psychology courses improve their research and writing skills. Rather than have their students complete a literature review or term paper within the confines of one semester, faculty introduced a step-by-step procedure in which student research is incorporated into the psychology program sequence. Outlined here is the sequence of courses devised for the students. Since inception of the program, psychology instructors have reported a substantial increase in student research projects. The quality of students' work is higher, and both psychology and non-psychology majors are more interested in presenting their work at regional conferences. (RJM)
