Research and Teaching through the University of Texas's Freshman Research Initiative

When: Monday, May 13, 2013 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Where: Stamp Student Union : Charles Carrroll Room
Event Type(s): Lecture

Sarah L Simmons of the University of Texas at Austin will present on how UT merges research and teaching through the Freshman Research Initiative (FRI).

The FRI is a faculty-initiated reinvention of the undergraduate research paradigm. More than 700 freshmen each year participate in an integrated 3-semester research-based course sequence that aligns research and teaching missions, increases the number and diversity of students engaged in research and significantly impacts student success. The FRI model is scalable, exportable, discipline-independent and includes all aspects of research from conceptualization through execution and presentation. The program, its goals, impact data and potential for future expansion will be presented.
