Audience: Current Graduate Students, Faculty

We know that direct participation in research increases learning and promotes retention. However, supervising undergraduate researchers requires a significant time investment that may limit the number of students a faculty mentor can work with. How, then, can we involve more undergraduate students in research? Mentoring student cohorts may be an effective way to extend the benefits of undergrad research to more students. Join us for lunch to discuss the advantages and challenges of undergraduate cohort mentoring. Dr. Larry Lemke (Associate Professor of Geology and WSU Environmental Science Program Director) will share his experiences leading two interdisciplinary research projects involving a total of 28 STEM and non-STEM undergraduate students. Co-sponsored by the Office for Teaching and Learning and the WSU WIDER Grant program. Click here to register.
