Faculty can apply to teach special sections of the First-Year Experience (BAC 101/102, or HON 101/102). These courses allow students to be exposed to scholarship in the discipline.
Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry Information for Faculty
There are several ways UT faculty can participate in developing student scholars through research and inquiry. These include:
- Exposing students to research in inquiry-based sections of the First-Year experience;
- Incorporating research and inquiry into the curriculum; and
- Mentoring students in research projects during the academic year and/or during the summer.
The Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry supports faculty in each of these areas.
Faculty can also request in-class presentations by the OURI director or student research ambassadors by completing a Presentation Request Form. These presentations may include topics such as getting involved in research, student-mentor relationships, responsible conduct of research and research ethics, summer off-campus research experiences or preparing a poster presentation.
