Summer Learning Community
Student Researchers: Optimize Your Experience
A learning community in Canvas for Summer 2020
Mentored experiences in research can be very rewarding. Students develop their research skills, research identity, and professional connections - all while making important research contributions.
The purpose of this learning community is to convene student researchers from across disciplines into a community where they learn from one another and develop skills that are important to researchers in all disciplines, such as communication, organization, and research codes of conduct.
Undergraduate student researchers are the primary audience, though the content is relevant to graduate and professional students, who are also welcome.
Within the Canvas community, participants are provided 10 learning modules (topics below).
For each module, participants complete a brief assignment in Canvas and attend a community discussion on Friday morning from 9-10 a.m. using WebEx.
In addition, students attend one “small-group office hour” during the 12-week period (maximum three students at a time).
Students who complete the assignments for all 10 modules, attend at least seven WebEx discussions, and attend one office hour will receive a certificate of participation from UC’s Undergraduate Research Program.
