Engaging Students In Research and Inquiry

Knowledge creation is the business of every academic, whether research active or not.

This workshop will be run like a flipped classroom with exercises for registered participants.

The following topics will be covered:
1. Developing the teaching-research nexus
2. Different ways of engaging students in research and inquiry
3. Strategies for engaging students at the beginning of their undergraduate course
4. Strategies for engaging students beyond the first year of their undergraduate course
