Peer Review, Spring, 2010: This issue highlights undergraduate programs that integrate students into the research community through mentored experiences in various disciplines. These programs strive to provide students with hands-on opportunities to participate in original research projects and to engage in creative activities and scholarship under the guidance of experienced faculty members. Articles focus on undergraduate research in the arts and humanities, as well as in STEM disciplines, and describe models for first-year and lower-division students.
This issue explores how departments are developing assessment approaches that deepen student learning. Recognizing that most faculty identify strongly with their discipline and that students are engaged in more complex and sophisticated practice of liberal learning as they complete their majors, the issue presents articles that advance integrative and engaged learning in and across disciplines. The features draw on sessions and presentations from AAC&U’s 2009 Engaging Departments Institute.
