Kahoot Review Quiz (10 minutes) (Laurie)
This is a research-focused first-year seminar, which is intended to serve as an introduction to research at an R1 institution, such as the University of Iowa. Students who are considering graduate or professional school will find this seminar of particular interest. No prior research knowledge or experience is required.
“Research shows…” or “scientists have discovered…” makes it in a lot of headlines, but how many people actually know what research is, where it happens, or who does it? Undergraduate research is touted by many as one of the most valuable experiences you can have at an institution like the University of Iowa. People may have already told you that you must be involved if you want to go on to a graduate or professional program. This course is designed to introduce you to undergraduate research, commonly the first step in a budding researcher’s academic and career path. You will learn what resources are available to you at the UI, how research involvement can be woven into your studies, and whether research is a good fit for you (or possibly not). Learn what science research is, what happens in laboratories on a day-to-day basis, how to get involved as an undergraduate, and so much more.
