Insights for Academic Developers from Three International Undergraduate Research Program Resources
Allison, Meredith; Miller, Paul
International Journal for Academic Development, v23 n1 p65-68 2018
Undergraduate research is recognized as a high-impact educational practice (Kuh & O'Donnell, 2013), and increasingly it occurs world-wide in higher education, in particular in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. In each of these countries, undergraduate research is delivered through a variety of pedagogical approaches that possess both striking similarities and meaningful differences. This article discusses these similarities and differences across three undergraduate research program resources each originating from one of these three countries: (1) Characteristics of excellence in undergraduate research (COEUR) (Nancy Hensel, ed.) from the United States; (2) Developing research-based curricula in college-based higher education (Mick Healey, Alan Jenkins, and John Lea, Heslington) from the United Kingdom; and (3) Undergraduate research in Australia (initiated by Angela Brew). The authors note that the geographic and institutional contexts can affect the language used to describe undergraduate research (UR) as well as how the UR experience is structured and delivered. They conclude by highlighting the ways these resources might support academic developers who are working on undergraduate research.
