Webinar: Assessing Undergraduate Research What We Can Learn from Assessment at Multiple Levels

CUR Webinar: Assessing Undergraduate Research What We Can Learn from Assessment at Multiple Levels

Are you interested in assessment of undergraduate research?  In this webinar, we will highlight assessment tools designed to help evaluators perform holistic assessment of undergraduate research programs. Each speaker will present a general overview about what we can learn about the efficacy of undergraduate research programs through one of three distinct lenses (focused on student learning outcomes, focused on curricular design and structure, focused on institutional support systems), followed by an in-depth example from their own scholarship of how one such tool has informed their own undergraduate research practice.  Audience members will be invited to participate in a discussion of the benefits and limitations of current assessment tools, and to add to our conceptual model of using multiple lenses for a holistic evaluation of the undergraduate research enterprise.

 

Workshop leaders:

Kelly McConnaughay, Bradley University
 
Carol Bender, University of Arizona
 
Angela Brew, Macquarie University (Australia)

Amelia Ahern-Rindell, University of Portland

Introductions by:  Elizabeth Ambos, Executive Officer, Council on Undergraduate Research
