Presentation for for Reinvention Center's National Conference on "Integrating Research into Undergraduate Education: The Value Added" held in Washington DC, Nov 18-19, 2004. http://www.sunysb.edu/Reinventioncenter/.
This session discussed techniques and strategies to integrate interdisciplinary research in the arts, humanities, science and engineering in undergraduate learning. Seminar courses structured as inquiry-centered, project-based, design studios for creative problem solving provide opportunities and challenges for faculty and students to explore topics and methodologies that encourage both teamwork collaborations and independent thinking. Using a personal portfolio and a journal of daily reflections helps faculty and students track progress on individual developments as well as enrich the research experiences for undergraduates.
