The Reinvention Centre for Undergraduate Research
Academic Fellowship, October 2007 - March 2009
The Department of Sociology at Warwick runs a Professional Skills Programme (PSP) which aims to introduce research skills for first-year undergraduates. My fellowship has evaluated the existing programme and its capacity to deliver both transferable, subject-specific and intellectual research skills, and student reflexivity about research skill acquisition. Students have been involved in the design and implementation of the evaluation, and generating ideas for reinventing the programme.
Various outputs from the project are available online as follows:
