Sep 14, 2020 EPUB Document Book Review--Undergraduate Research in Film: A Guide for Students (EPub) - SPUR
EPub version. Reviewed by Allen Larson. This volume offers a welcome contribution to the scholarship and practice of undergraduate research by helping "faculty and students in the arts, and film in particular, become more accustomed to viewing what they do through the lens of ‘undergraduate research,’” as such activities can be better understood, the authors argue, through the more inclusive frame of “Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities” (URSCA, ix).

Sep 14, 2020 EPUB Document Using Course-Based Research to Evaluate Best Practices for Teaching Writing to First-Year Engineering Students (EPub) - SPUR
EPub. Using a course-based undergraduate research experience model of education, an instructor designed an honors section of first-year composition to evaluate current best practices in teaching writing to STEM undergrads.The first-year engineering majors conducted guided research on best practices in teaching writing at STEM universities, created an in-class activity, tested each other’s activities in small groups, and gave feedback on the activities and the theories behind the best practices.

Sep 14, 2020 EPUB Document Flip the Switch: Illuminating the Existence of Creativity and Research in All Disciplines (EPub) - SPUR
EPub version At Florida Southern College, each academic discipline combines creativity, research, and scholarship uniquely, as students move from roles as receivers of information to emerging independent scholars, artists, and researchers. Commonalities across academic disciplines need to be maximized so that inclusive assessment instruments and evaluation plans can be developed to measure how academic programs improve student skills related to original inquiry.

Sep 14, 2020 EPUB Document Preservice Teachers on Their Way to Becoming Reflective Practitioners: The Relevance of Freedom of Choice in Research-Based Learning (EPub) - International Perspectives, SPUR
EPub version. Undergraduate students (N = 1133) were surveyed regarding their beliefs about a reflective teaching practice at the beginning and the end of their research course, as well as the nature of freedom of choice within their project work. Multiple regression analysis showed that freedom for students in choosing the research instrument was positively associated with their beliefs about the benefits of conducting research for their teaching practice.

Sep 14, 2020 EPUB Document Promoting Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Humanities Research: A Case for the Continuous Course Lab (EPub) - SPUR
EPub version. The continuous course lab (CCL) is an alternative model for conducting undergraduate research in the humanities. CCL segments large-scale research projects into smaller-scale projects that run over a series of semesters. The CCL model is unique in that it provides majors from outside the humanities with exposure to humanities research questions, methods, and communities of practice. A case study illustrates the model in a technical communication class over 7 semesters.

Sep 14, 2020 EPUB Document Assessment of Undergraduate Research Learning Outcomes: Poster Presentations as Artifacts (EPub) - SPUR
EPub The authors developed a set of undergraduate research (UR) learning outcomes that address research and mentoring across campus. Achievement is assessed at annual, institution-wide UR events by employing a poster presentation evaluation rubric and deploying grad students, postdoctoral scholars, and faculty as ad hoc raters. Student participants in the one-semester funded and mentored UR program performed significantly higher on four quantified learning outcomes than did nonparticipants.

Sep 14, 2020 EPUB Document Development of a Mentoring Course-Based Undergraduate Research Experience (M-CURE) (EPub version) - SPUR
EPub version This article describes the design of a mentoring course-based undergraduate research experience (M-CURE) that focuses on the publication and career growth aspects of the research experience. A survey of students who completed the course indicated that they appreciated both the publication and mentoring facets of the course. The first three cohorts of the M-CURE course have resulted in 83 percent of students with a viable paper for publication.

Sep 14, 2020 EPUB Document What We Know and What We Need to Know about Undergraduate Research (EPub) - SPUR
EPub version The authors conducted a mixed-methods study, including a systematic analysis of literature that assessed the impact of UR, and interviewed faculty and administrators actively engaged in UR. Findings demonstrated that most studies on UR have focused on STEM fields and student outcomes. Fewer studies have examined other disciplines or other outcomes such as the impact of UR on faculty or institution. More work is needed to diversify the topics and scope of scholarship on UR.
