The Teaching and Research Partnership: Framework for Connecting Concepts to Practice While Mentoring Undergraduate Students in Research
Heiden, Kathleen
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v110 n1 p49-54 Win 2018
Research is beneficial for student learning in undergraduate curricula. Undergraduate students who actively participate in research develop problem solving skills and learn to think independently. However, with limited faculty resources at many universities, only elite undergraduate students participate in research programs. This paper provides a framework for integrating undergraduate research into classes. Students are mentored through the research process, adding value to the learning experience by engaging all students in critical thinking and inquiry. Through actively engaging in research, students were able to connect concepts and theories learned in class to real-world applications they will encounter as professionals.
