For several years, the facilitators have collaborated across institutions to bring actual psychological research to community college undergraduate students. This webinar begins with a brief synopsis of the national dialogue on undergraduate research and its utility in undergraduate education. Special attention is given to the importance of introducing such activities in the nation's community colleges, and the facilitators share how they began their work together, with an emphasis on the in-class mechanics behind the effort. The webinar wraps up with lessons learned and an invitation for dialogue.
