Battaglia, Samantha Jude; Echegoyen, Lourdes E.; Diaz-Martinez, Laura A. – Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research, 2022
Most studies on the benefits of participation in undergraduate research (UGR) use data from student participants in undergraduate research programs (URPs), which offer a limited number of positions. In reality, however, the majority of UGR students participate in undergraduate research not in programs (URNPs). The authors conducted an…

Hamel, Jennifer A.; ter Hofstede, Hannah M.; Gauthier, Adrienne; Lopatto, David; Merton, Prudence; Vandermast, David – Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research, 2021
Few studies have investigated the effects of combining undergraduate research with study abroad. The authors present student self-reported learning gains from two undergraduate courses that embed research within study abroad courses. Students in one course worked in small groups on original research projects; students in the second course…

Grindle, Nicholas; Anyadi, Stefanie; Cain, Amanda; McClelland, Alastair; Northrop, Paul; Payne, Rebecca; Gray, Sara Wingate – Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research, 2021
In recent years, advocates for research-based education have publicized many examples of passive research involvement, defined as undergraduates learning about the content and lived experience of research at their institution. But the qualitative dimensions of passive research involvement remain unknown. The authors' study uses Diana Laurillard's…

Kistner, Kelly; Sparck, Erin M.; Liu, Amy; Whang Sayson, Hannah; Levis-Fitzgerald, Marc; Arnold, Whitney – Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research, 2021
As many studies on undergraduate research outcomes are focused on STEM fields, the widely variable experiences in the humanities, arts, and social sciences are less known and harder to study. This article assesses outcomes among students who pursued faculty-mentored research in those fields and concurrently participated in programs administered…
