Developing Students, Developing Faculty: Incompatible or Compatible Goals?
Ware, Mark E.; Davis, Stephen F.; Smith, Randolph A.
Grounding students in research methodology is at the core of the undergraduate curriculum. Students usually conduct individual projects in the experimental psychology or research methods courses, and most undergraduate courses in the psychology curriculum contain a strong research component. The opportunities and benefits for undergraduate student and faculty development after students have completed their research projects are addressed. Specifically, convention presentations and journal publication opportunities are examined. Suggestions for poster and paper presentations on campus and at regional, national, or statewide meetings are presented. The benefits for students and for faculty working with and sponsoring undergraduate students in presenting their work are reviewed. Developing students' scholarly skills is compatible with developing faculty's teaching and research skills. A win-win situation exists for both faculty and students when faculty facilitate the implementation of students' presenting and publishing opportunities. Originally a poster presentation, this brief paper contains contact information for journals that publish undergraduate research. (EMK)
