Integrating undergraduate research into the classroom provides students with meaningful learning experiences. Yet, there are few formal mechanisms that reward faculty for their efforts, which limits participation in undergraduate research. At primary undergraduate institutions (PUI), faculty members have large teaching loads and receive less funding for research. Strategically combining research, teaching, and service can maximize the impact of all three endeavors while reducing faculty workload. Faculty can also utilize traditional methods of compensation to reward undergraduate research efforts. This workshop will discuss strategies for infusing research into the classroom in a way that benefits faculty.
