A laboratory group model for engaging undergraduates in faculty research
In this article, I outline a laboratory group program for engaging large numbers of undergraduate psychology students in faculty research at small liberal arts colleges that have limited research resources. Participating in the group enhances the students' interest in and understanding of psychological research and improves their chances of being accepted into competitive graduate programs while allowing faculty to conduct multiple projects in an efficient manner.
