Ever wonder what students are truly learning through their research experience? We know that research is a well-established high-impact educational practice for undergraduate students. But how does that experience impact each individual student?

This workshop will focus on how to support student reflection at appropriate and meaningful points in their experience. It will introduce the three domains of learning and their application to student reflection at each stage of the Seven Ps of Research. Participants will practice reflection in-action during the workshop and reflection on-action after the workshop.


This workshop counts as an elective towards the Integrative and Experiential Learning certificate.
