Research Exposed!: Approaches to Inquiry
Made possible by the Odegaard Undergraduate Library and Learning Commons , the Undergraduate Research Program, and Undergraduate Academic Affairs , Research Exposed! (GEN ST 391) offers the undergraduate an opportunity to learn about current, exciting research in a wide variety of disciplines, including the process of discovery, how faculty come up with an idea for research, how inquiry is structured in the different disciplines, and how students can become involved in the knowledge-making process.
Presentations by UW faculty focus on specific issues such as ethics and the culture of research. Students attend weekly, fifty-minute discussions and have the opportunity to ask the speaker questions following each presentation. This course may be repeated for credit (1 credit/quarter-3 quarters max); speakers and topics will vary.
Enjoy the presentations!
The handouts each week will ask you to take notes during the lecture and to respond to questions related to that topic. We encourage you to attend all lectures and take notes during each lecture, in order to be best prepared for your final quiz. The final quiz will consist of 10 questions selected at random from the collection of questions given by each presenter. You will not know in advance of the quiz, which questions will appear on the final exam. To pass this course, you will need to answer correctly 7 of the 10 questions on the quiz and participate in the discussion board at least once during the quarter.
