In an effort to better the quality of research across Georgetown, the Undergraduate Research Conference (URC), sponsored by the Department of Human Science, will be holding a series of Research Workshops over the academic year.

The first in a series of three workshops will cover Basic Research Theory in a Q&A format to be held in the Career Center on Wednesday 11/6/13 from 2:30-4pm.

For notes on the event: 11.6.13 General Research Theory from the perspective of basic and social scientists Jason Tilan and Jessie Bump

Please see below for Workshop series description:                                    General Research Workshop, from the perspective of basic scientist, Jason Tilan, PhD – Department of Nursing

This three-part series will be roughly divided into 1) introduction to research; 2) managing the challenges during your investigation; 3) communicating your findings. Discussion groups (10-15 individuals) for the latter two meetings will work with specific examples provided by the participants.  The introductory session on research will be a broad overview of how to get involved, how to formulate your research question, and how to apply your results and experience to your undergraduate and professional goals. In particular, we will discuss research theory (reinforcement of HSCI-178 Research Theory and Communication in Science and Healthcare), opportunities during and after college, and the practical experience of research.  Additionally, this first session will be a forum to address your specific questions via a Q & A period.

If you have any questions about the event, please email Victor Wang, chair of the URC planning committee at vsw2@georgetown.edu
