AAA6.04 - Relationships Between Undergraduate Research and the Advanced Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory 
December 2, 2014   3:00pm - 3:15pm

I will present a model for a complementary relationship between an undergraduate research program and the undergraduate teaching laboratories in materials science. One clear example is using the teaching laboratory to prepare students to do more independent undergraduate research by emphasizing appropriate skills and knowledge, but there are several others. Undergraduate researchers can work with faculty to develop new and novel experiments and apparatus that can be used in the teaching laboratory. Undergraduates can gain working knowledge of common research techniques and equipment within their program. I will focus on examples from the courseMaterials Characterization Laboratory in the Physics of Materials option of our BS program and from my own experience with undergraduate research in the Physics Department at Weber State University, a primarily undergraduate institution. The ideas should be applicable to any institution placing a priority on undergraduate research and undergraduate education.
