Ideas and Approaches for Teaching Undergraduate Research Methods in the Health Sciences
Peachey, Andrew A.; Baller, Stephanie L.
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v27 n3 p434-442 2015
Training in research methodology is becoming more commonly expected within undergraduate curricula designed to prepare students for entry into graduate allied health programs. Little information is currently available about pedagogical strategies to promote undergraduate students' learning of research methods, and less yet is available discussing the challenges and benefits of such approaches for students and faculty. The present article provides a brief review of literature of pedagogically descriptive articles, provides two further examples of possible approaches, and discusses the challenges and benefits of using the described approaches to teach research methods to undergraduates in the health sciences.
