Diversity and Labs and experiential learning
The research team has been hosting undergraduate research about 10 years. Since summer 2017, faculty has been working on adopting critical pedagogy into undergraduate student research experiences through carefully designed problems and activities. However due to COVID 19, the program had to be transitioned into virtual research. In this study, we present reflections from virtual summer 2020 research experience. Results from four groups are summarized. Students were given pre and post summer research experience surveys. We compared student and faculty experiences. Differently, team interactions were not possible, activities were mainly training programs. Students were able to work with real-data previously collected and write codes. Although, final presentations were technically better than last two years. Student engagement, team working skills, peer-to-peer interaction, and overall experience disrupted significantly.
