Faculty Perceptions of Students in Life and Physical Science Research Labs
Gonyo, Claire P.; Cantwell, Brendan
Innovative Higher Education, v40 n4 p317-329 Aug 2015
This qualitative study involved interviews of 32 faculty principle investigators at three research institutions and explored how they view the role of students within physical and life science labs. We used socialization theory and student engagement literature to analyze faculty views, which can contribute to student investment in STEM fields. Findings relate to understanding students as workers versus learners or trainees and the tension that results from differing views of students.
