The Embedded Researcher Method for Involving Undergraduates in Research: New Data and Observations
Rogers, Darrin L.; Kranz, Peter L.; Ferguson, Christopher J.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v12 n3 p225-236 Jul 2013
Undergraduate research provides multiple educational advantages, and Hispanic students may reap particular benefits. The "embedded researcher" method avoids difficulties inherent in traditional apprenticeship models, providing meaningful research experience to multiple students within a standard didactic course structure while yielding valuable research data. The authors report implementing this method within an undergraduate course at a Hispanic-serving institution (HSI), with improvements from previous implementations. Outcomes were highly positive. Limitations and suggestions for application at other institutions are described. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
