The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the synergetic approach to research education for graduate students in a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI). A group of cross-disciplinary faculty members developed a series of graduate-level research methods-related workshops for pre- and in-service teachers. The investigators conducted pre-post tests and survey methods to evaluate all the initiative's workshops. The findings indicated that student learning was increased and that the synergetic approach was effective.
