Figure 1. Selection From the mentor's perspective, it seems obvious and beneficial to offer research opportunities to the students who will make the most of the experience, contribute to research, and be a positive member of the research community. Question s Explanation How many students can you have working together on the project?
This will help you determine how many students you can accept in your lab, as well as accepting students that might need more supervision.
How long will the student need to be in the lab for each day? Student may need to have an open and accommodating schedule Can the student work from home? How difficult are the techniques the student will implement? If the project requires multiple field seasons, the student needs to be able to sign on for multiple years How time sensitive is the project? Do you have funding to cover travel expenses?
The contract Communication plays a key part in a successful research experience and many undergraduates may not be familiar with the norms and expectations of how they should interact with their mentors, or may be uncomfortable initiating conversations or meetings. Meetings The initial meetings with a new student provide a critical opportunity for setting the right tone and establishing expectations. Peer mentors Individual weekly meetings with undergraduates can seem like a daunting time investment, particularly when several students work in the laboratory at the same time.
Paired projects Pairing students on projects often provides a good way to foster a friendly and supportive laboratory environment and increase research productivity and enthusiasm. Checkpoints and deadlines As described earlier, clear communication underlies setting reasonable deadlines that advance the research Linn et al.
