Practical Tips For Managing Challenging Scenarios in Undergraduate Research
Most faculty members who have mentored undergraduate research experiences agree that it is a rewarding experience, for themselves as well as for their students. However, most faculty mentors also agree that challenging scenarios often arise during the course of the research experience. In this issue, we focus on solutions to some of the common challenges that faculty mentors face. The highlighted article, “Practical Tips for Managing Challenging Scenarios in Undergraduate Research,” by Brad Bailey, Mark Budden, and Urmi Ghosh-Dastidar presents some solutions that were discussed by a group of faculty participating in the 2008 Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics (CURM) Workshop. We hope that our readers will benefit from the insight of their collective experience.
