Students as Collaborators: An MCS Division Webinar

April 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This free webinar is hosted by the Mathematical, Computing, and Statistical Sciences Division of CUR but is open to the entire undergraduate research community. This webinar will take place on Tuesday, April 23 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET.

When faculty members mentor students in undergraduate research, they function in the role of mentor. This makes sense – faculty have more experience in choosing problems, understanding disciplinary norms, pursuing the research, and reporting the results. However, students bring their own knowledge and experience to the work and can function as genuine collaborators. Students ask good questions, demonstrate audacity, cross disciplinary boundaries, and possess real expertise, all of which can enrich the research experience for the faculty member. In this talk, Dominic Klyve will share some of his experiences with student research, with a focus on what the students bring to the work.

Dominic Klyve is a Professor of Mathematics at Central Washington University. He is the author of more than 70 papers in number theory, the history of mathematics and science, and applied statistics. His interdisciplinary works have appeared in journals ranging from Gastrointestinal Endoscopy to Shakespeare Quarterly. He has won the Alder Award for teaching and the Lester-Ford Award for expository writing from the Mathematical Association of America, plus the Faculty Mentoring Award from the Council on Undergraduate Research.
