KarenLP: Teaching Undergraduate Research

Tags: research, undergraduate

Your situation (context)


Describe the material and social characteristics of the environment in which you operate. Where will your project take place? Who are the main actors involved? Include images, videos, sketches - anything that would help others understand the opportunities and constraints you are dealing with.

Full time second year undergraduate students are required to complete a research module. These students are a mix of British strudents and others from around the workd - many of whom speak English as their second or even third language.

It is intended that these will attend classes but there is an opportunity to make use of blended learning.

The project will take place at a university in the UK.

The class size is 40 students and there are 2 tutors available - one for 2 hours and the other for 3 hours. The participants have access to a computer room for 42 students, a lecture theatre or small seminar room for up to 20 students and a VLE.






The change you would like to see (challenge)


What do you hope to achieve? What would be different if you succeed?

More use of blended learning and self-directed learning.

The opportunity to include small group sessions to ensure every member of the class understands the concepts.
