Description

Helping students recognize and appreciate the critical thinking and communication skills involved in completing research projects can be difficult, especially when students are intimidated by the course content. Students may approach the research process with an emphasis on survival and overlook opportunities for intellectual and personal growth. I will describe how I have utilized ideas put forth in the book Habits of Mind (e.g., metacognition, persistence) in research methods courses to help students recognize and use the intelligent behaviors necessary to navigate the research process. Instructor and students' perspectives on the benefits and challenges of utilizing Habits of Mind will be discussed.
