Oct 4, 2016: Course-Based Research Experiences: Varied Implementations and New Directions

5 October 2016

Course-based research experiences (CUREs) provide exciting opportunities for scaling up benefits of mentored research internships, but their design, implementation, and assessment come with a unique set of challenges. We will present different perspectives on ways that research has been integrated into STEM courses as well as findings from last year’s CURE workshop, with the goal of expanding the conversation about course-based research at Carleton.
