Educational Resources
Teaching Methods

The documentation of undergraduate research experiences is collected in the context of iEarth Focus Area 2 (FA2, A Learning Environment for Students). A key step for FA2 is to provide course-based undergraduate research experiences. FA2 aims to establish such a framework early in the geoscience programs through repeated exposure to collaborative research projects in the classroom, the field, and in the lab. In this report we present examples of field and lab-based undergraduate research experiences currently in operation at UiB and UNIS. Information about the design of undergraduate research experiences was collected through interviews with course responsible teachers and described in step-by-step instructions.
