Undergraduate Student Researchers, Preferred Learning Styles, and Basic Science Research: A Winning Combination
Woeste, Lori A.; Barham, Beverly J.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v81 n2 p63-66 Nov-Dec 2007
In basic science research, student researchers are often challenged with not only the technical portion of the research design but also the team dynamic. Understanding how a student prefers to learn can provide an advantage for mentors to better meet these challenges. In this article, the authors describe the experience of working with student researchers with different preferred learning styles and how knowing this information contributed to creating a positive learning environment resulting in a winning combination for the research team.
