Forging Faculty-Student Relationships at the College Level Using a First-Year Research Experience
Forbes, David C.; Davis, Patricia M.
Journal of Chemical Education, v85 n12 p1696-1698 Dec 2008
Coupling the scholarly activities of the chemistry research faculty with that of the first-year honors general chemistry laboratory has resulted in additional research experience for undergraduate students and a rise of productivity within the chemistry department. For seven years, first-year university honors students enrolled in the honors general chemistry laboratory sections have been assigned to work in the labs of the research-active faculty within the chemistry department. Approximately a quarter of those students enrolled in the honors general chemistry laboratory sections elect to continue their research experience. The continued and sustained research experience has resulted in a research journal paper for six participants. For the past four years, four papers have been accepted for publication because of the research activities conducted as first-year students stemming from this program. Each paper has had at least one co-author as an undergraduate at the first- or second-year level.
