Undergraduate Research Mentorship and Integration into the Classroom, Oct. 6

Creighton faculty members Carol Fassbinder-Orth, PhD, Katherine Liu, PhD, and Matt Reznicek, PhD, in collaboration with other faculty colleagues, will host “Undergraduate Research Mentorship: Challenges and Successes, and Integration of Research into the Classroom through CUREs (Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences)” on Oct. 6.

The event is 4 to 5:30 p.m. (CDT), 2 to 3:30 p.m. (MST) in Skutt Center Room 104 in-person or available online. Register for the event, hosted by the Center for Faculty Excellence and the Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship.

Objectives are:

  • Participants will share challenges and successes they have had in undergraduate research and learn strategies for effective undergraduate mentorship
  • Participants will learn what CUREs are, how to design them, and why they benefit student learning in the classroom.
  • For Organizers: We will obtain ideas for specific needs that participants have regarding undergraduate research mentorship and CUREs that could be integrated into future workshops

Participants will break-out into one of four anticipated breakout rooms: humanities and social sciences undergraduate mentorship strategies; natural sciences undergraduate mentorship strategies; understanding CUREs and how to integrate them into your courses; and using a combination approach for Zoom sessions depending on the participant make-up.
