The Mentoring in Undergraduate Research Teaching Circle is in the process of recruiting subjects (seniors and/or alumni) who have participated in undergraduate research to participate in interviews about their experiences while at Georgia College. Our hypothesis, based on non-empirical evidence, is that students engaged in undergraduate research will acknowledge faculty mentoring as one of the most effective pedagogies contributing to their (future) success. We have an unique opportunity to showcase how institutions with limited resources but creative approaches can impact student success in meaningful ways.
We are asking each of you to provide us with names and any contact information that you may have of current seniors or past students that you have effectively mentored in Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors. Click here to add information for as many seniors and alumni as possible. Please feel free to share this with your colleagues at GC.
Please complete by January 25th. This study has been reviewed and approved by the GC Institutional Review Board under Protocol #1559 effective January 13, 2013. Preliminary results will be disseminated at a future CETL event and used as part of a roundtable discussion at the SOTL Commons in Savannah, GA.
Thank you for helping us with this on-going study. If you have questions or recommendations, please do not hesitate to contact me.
