Mentoring Student Participation in Undergraduate Research: A Case Study of Twists and Turns from Two Perspectives
Perez, Ismael; Bowers, Janet; Salamon, Peter
PRIMUS, v27 n4-5 p526-536 2017
Undergraduate research experiences provide excellent examples of high-impact practices. They rely on inquiry-based learning to provide important capstone experiences for the students. However, they are time-intensive for mentor faculty. In an attempt to scale up our faculty's ability to offer such experiences, we combined a number of projects into one class: the Biomathematics Workshop. This article chronicles the experiences of one student from that class interspersed with comments from his mentor. Our goal is to illustrate some of the twists and turns in his journey and the unexpected but valuable lessons the student (and the mentoring team) learned.
