The skills gained in the research process can help prepare you for success in future careers and further your educational goals. However, sometimes it can be unclear what skills you’ve developed or how to translate them to another audience like an employer or graduate school admissions committee. One way to learn how to articulate research skills is through reflective practice. Reflective practice is essential to identifying, understanding and communicating your personal and professional growth. In this skills articulation workshop, you will explore how to use the DEAL framework to reflect on and articulate the impact of your research experiences on applicable skills, academic/professional growth, and career development.
Facilitators: Kara Loy, Dr. Lisa Stowe, PhD, Dr. Kyla Flanagan, PhD
By the end of this session, you will be able to:
- Use the DEAL framework to reflect on and articulate the impact of research on skill development
- Identify and articulate skills developed through research in collaboration with other undergraduate researchers
- Explain and describe how to translate research skills for various audiences
- Create or revise a resume to include skills acquired through undergraduate research
This session will be held in-person.
