This panel discussion will present the rationale for conducting research and creative scholarship with undergraduates. We will also discuss national models for undergraduate research and the best practices for infusing the curriculum with research-like experiences. The national Council on Undergraduate Research defines undergraduate research as "an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline." While this definition traditionally refers to research in the STEM disciplines, these practices also apply to creative scholarship in the arts and humanities. Bring your best mentor tricks to the session as well as your toughest lessons to teach. As a group, we will find solutions to individual problems and discuss the best practices for York College.
