Faculty Support and Undergraduate Research Webinar
Faculty Support and Undergraduate Research: Innovation in Faculty Role Definition, Workload, and Reward Webinar
American colleges and universities, and many international institutions, are embracing undergraduate research as a powerful learning pedagogy across all disciplines and all types of institutions. Faculty and administrators have firsthand experience in observing the transformative power of undergraduate research. Though many professors consider undergraduate research as a central part of their faculty role, finding time to work with student researchers is often a major concern. Even with administrative commitment to undergraduate research, institutions find it challenging to fund reassigned time for faculty or provide courses that support and encourage undergraduate research. And there is often significant controversy about whether and how faculty engagement in undergraduate research should be rewarded in reappointment, promotion, and tenure decisions. The authors in this book discuss many aspects of providing support for faculty who involve undergraduates in research. It is the editors’ hope that this book will provide inspiration and encouragement to administrators and faculty to design solutions to these challenges that can be integrated into campus practices and cultures.
