Infusing Undergraduate Scholarship Into Teacher Education, Tunde Szecsi, Hasan Aydin Oct 2018

Infusing Undergraduate Scholarship Into Teacher Education, Tunde Szecsi, Hasan Aydin

Florida Statewide Symposium: Best Practices in Undergraduate Research

Students majoring in education are underrepresented in undergraduate scholarship. To enable teacher candidates to develop and demonstrate their skills in scholarly activities and products, we implemented a well-orchestrated infusion of problem-solving, critical thinking, oral and written communication, collaboration into courses.

In this presentation, we will describe this systematic course-based infusion of scholarly endeavors with examples from courses. In addition, during the past three years, annually we assessed teacher candidates’ scholarly products for critical thinking, informational literacy and writing. Here we will share what we learned from the data, and how we used it to strengthen undergraduate scholarship for future teachers.
