Undergraduate Research Fundamentals: Empowering Students Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, March 11, 2020, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Undergraduate research programs on college campuses are as popular as they’ve ever been, but faculty at those institutions often wrestle with ways to systematically teach undergraduates how to conduct research. While the traditional one-shots can help, rarely do they allow librarians to elevate instruction beyond the simple “what is a peer-reviewed article” lesson plan. This workshop considers what students need to understand about scholarly research regardless of our time constraints and limited opportunities. Participants in the workshop will learn to teach students about the ecosystem that sustains the scholarly research process, pushes research projects forward through unexpected hoops, and makes the work of researchers possible.

Information literacy expert Toni Carter shares learning activities that will help students understand the concept of the scholarly research ecosystem. You'll learn to teach about how campus infrastructure supports scholarship, the challenges scholars face when sharing research in the evolving world of scholarly publishing, and why universities place such emphasis on outside grants.

This workshop equips you with ideas to use in the classroom or share with other faculty. These ideas will enhance undergraduates’ grasp of the world of scholarly research—and benefit your institution as a whole.

By participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Consider reasons why undergraduate researchers need familiarity with the scholarly research ecosystem
  • Identify components of the ecosystem that are critical for successful undergraduate research efforts
  • Strategize ways to help undergraduates learn more about these crucial components
