It Takes a Curriculum: Preparing Students for Research and Creative Work
Hodge, David; LePore, Paul; Pasquesi, Kira; Hirsh, Marissa
Liberal Education, v94 n3 p6-15 Sum 2008
Technological advances have made research-based learning possible now in ways that were unimaginable in previous generations. Such learning can and, the authors argue, should be at the center of the undergraduate experience. In this article, the authors describe an approach that combines research-based learning with student development theory to offer a more comprehensive model for organizing undergraduate education. They label this approach the Student as Scholar Model, where "scholar" is conceived in terms of an attitude or frame of mind derived from the best traditions of an engaged liberal education. The model operationalizes the Discovery Paradigm, in which scholarship--defined as original research and creative work--extends and transcends classroom learning.
