Description: Undergraduate students participate in research through a variety of mechanisms, including on campus research assistant positions, summer research experience programs, independent study research credits, and even research-oriented degree requirements. Educators from several units on our campus have collaborated to develop undergraduate-level training materials associated with the context of research. Topics covered include the scientific method, ethics in research, documentation and treatment of research data, publication practices, presentation of results, the structure of the broader research community, the graduate school application process, effective presentations, and abstract writing. The learning objects (videos, readings, case studies, and discussion activities) we created have been used to introduce undergraduates to the conduct of science and engineering research. These resources have been tested in formal classroom and seminar venues, through an Introduction to Engineering Research course in our Engineering Physics bachelors degree program and a seminar series offered to undergraduate students engaged in research with the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
