The Student Research Steering Council is sponsoring a roundtable of research-active faculty on Tuesday, October 6th. Aimed at current students, the roundtable will focus on faculty research experiences. Faculty presenters will provide advice about how to get involved in research and how they have benefitted from their research experiences.
- Date: October 6, 2015
- Time: 5.45-7.00
- Place: Anacapa Commons
The objectives of the roundtable are to meet faculty from across the disciplines, learn about their intellectual development, and discover how research fits into their intellectual and teaching lives. Among the questions panelists will address are:
- What’s your background?
- What’s your field?
- What’s at the core of your field? (this is an interdisciplinary group)
- How did you get interested in that field?
- What led you to pursue graduate work?
- How did you get interested in research?
- What role does it play in your intellectual life?
- What does your research center on?
- How did you choose that?
- Did you have mentors? What was their role in your development?
- What advice would you give to students interested in getting involved in research?
