Join the Network of STEM Education Centers (NSEC) on Monday, October 30th at 1:30-2:30 pm EDT, for the first of a series of webinars on undergraduate research experiences.
To open the series, we will be featuring the National Academies report, Undergraduate Research Experiences for STEM Students: Successes, Challenges, and Opportunities (2017). Janet L. Branchaw, who served on the committee, will give an overview of the report, which examines what is known about the effectiveness of undergraduate research experiences (URE). The report also recommends that researchers, institutions, and funders work together to strengthen the evidence base on these experiences.
Following Dr. Branchaw’s presentation, Kacy Redd will facilitate a discussion with centers about how they are supporting UREs.
