Nikolova Eddins, Stefka G.; Williams, Douglas F.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v8 n3 p77-94 1997
Outlines a model for research-based learning (RBL) in undergraduate study, using thematic, collaborative research and related activities as learning tools. The results of a four-year project illustrate that RBL serves more students than traditional undergraduate research models, encourages faculty-student interaction, stimulates new scholarship, and prepares undergraduates to better adapt to workplace demands.
