Chemical Engineering Education, v51 n3 p145-150 Sum 2017
This study examined how a collaborative research environment in a structured research experience impacts undergraduate student outcomes. Students demonstrated significant gains in research skills and provided positive appraisals of their collaborative experiences. Emphasis on collaboration among students in an undergraduate research program appears to yield a number of benefits, including helping participants to acclimate to the research setting, facilitating problem solving and idea generation during research, and enhancing the overall research experience for students.
