Course-embedded research allows students to conduct independent research projects under the supervision of an instructor in a class. By embedding real projects into a course, instructors can have students directly apply concepts discussed in lecture. This can also benefit students from under-represented groups or those who might not have the funds or time to do research or an internship. Students in course-embedded research exhibit higher gains in understanding the construction of knowledge, having the ability to carry out data analysis and scientific writing, and understanding the use of evidence to support hypotheses and assertions. Instructors can also benefit if the projects the students work on are related to their own scholarship. In this workshop, instructors will use backward design to integrate a research project into one of their courses.
