Expectations for Research-Intensive Course Mini-Grant Recipients

Recipients of Research-Intensive Course Mini-Grants will be expected to:

  • Participate in a one-hour workshop prior to the start of the semester in which they receive the award.  There will be 1 to 2 hours of prep work to complete before this workshop.
  • Use the Research/Creative Cycle (pdf) to frame their assignment for students.  By using this image with students, we are hoping to provide a common framework that students can use to connect their research experiences across classes.
  • Require students to present their research or creative project at the Fall Undergraduate Research Showcase, which will be an online event for Fall 2021.
  • Provide a copy of a teaching tool and/or course assignments that can be shared as an Open Educational Resource (OER) through KU Scholarworks.  The Center for Undergraduate Research and KU Libraries will work with grant recipients to select appropriate Creative Commons licensing for their materials.
