Expanding the Cure Model: Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience, a new publication from the Research Corporation for Science Advancement
, shares best practices for transforming traditional coursework into a research environment that meets both educational and research objectives.
The book is a culmination of best practices developed by a group of
RCSA Cottrell Scholars
K-State Vice President for Research Peter Dorhout provided the foreword.
"Undergraduate research was an incredible game-changer for me personally, and I recognized the value in engaging emerging scientists in the search for new knowledge," Dorhout writes.
Providing traditional research experiences for all students can be difficult, but the CURE model infuses research into the curriculum. "Not only can we include and serve more students, but we can expand the passion for science that so many of us developed while practicing science," Dorhout says.
