Student Involvement in Research: Benefits for Students and Faculty.
Regeth, Rebecca A.
This paper discusses the many benefits of student research in college. The process of conducting research provides students the opportunity to learn about the research process, and going through the research process allows students to gain organizational and networking skills. Student research gives faculty members the opportunity to pursue their discipline while honing their teaching skills. Research experience, presentations, and publications by students are valued by employers and graduate schools. A side effect is that the student becomes a better consumer of research. An added benefit may be the opportunity to attend conferences and the learning possible in a conference situation. (Contains 13 references.) (SLD)
