How to integrate project-based learning with research and creative works
Undergraduate Research Office, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research
This workshop will introduce participants to the concept of VIPs initiated at Mānoa in Spring 2015 with three VIP teams, now grown to 13 teams and ›200 students from six diverse departments across Mānoa campus.
The VIP Program uses long-term, in-depth, project-based learning to engage students and prepare them for future careers. VIPs are a great collaborative experience for students, and also help faculty to integrate education with their own research and creative work interests. Participants will hear both student and faculty advisor perspectives.
Some features of the program include:
• Multidisciplinary teams consisting of faculty mentor(s), graduate student researchers, and undergraduates provide rich educational experiences outside of traditional classrooms.
• Students working on the same project over multiple semesters are provided with meaningful, in-depth experiences and credits useful towards graduation requirements.
• Graduate and more experienced undergraduates help mentor new students, enabling the development of teamwork and leadership skills.
Feel free to bring your own lunch. Beverages will be provided.
Please register as space is limited.
