As part of the Integrated Learning: Experiential Education at the University of Toronto Series, this Developing and Enhancing Undergraduate Research Opportunities workshop will provide participants with a framework for the efficient development of curricular and co-curricular research experiences for undergraduate students, as well as information on models and resources available to support the development and offering of such courses at the University of Toronto. Speakers will provide a framework to ground the range of research-related experiences that students are exposed to at all stages of their programs, highlight case study examples from a range of disciplines for embedding undergraduate research experiences within courses or complimentary to courses, and provide practical guidance on the administration of research opportunities within the University of Toronto context, including how the University of Toronto Library system can be leveraged. Participants will work with the facilitators to begin the development or redesign process for new or existing research-based courses or programs, and will leave with a more thorough understanding of how to offer this type of course or program at the University of Toronto.
