  • What students say about working with faculty mentors... | Iowa Center for Research by Undergraduates
    me with different resources and helped me focus my career goals I will continue to work with him in any way possible in the future because he is so invested in his students and is such a great mentor and friend As a mentor he provides me with the ideal balance of guidance and freedom This allows me to think on my own and learn from my mistakes Similarly when I am struggling he motivates and guides me in decision making He is gracious he delivers advice to improve my weaknesses yet reinforce my strengths facilitating me in developing better rounded abilities When I began working with my faculty mentor I had very little of an idea of where research could take me what doors it could open and what I was capable of as an individual Since then his willingness to answer my questions and help me learn more about the research I was working on has motivated me to approach each project with enthusiasm and confidence The motivation he has provided me has completely changed my mindset toward academics and how I carry myself professionally It was not until I began working with him that I truly understood

  • What students say about the benefits of research... | Iowa Center for Research by Undergraduates
    foundation with my mentor so that I could get a feel for what doing research is like I have learned many times more about my field and about what to expect from my career than what I learn in lectures and educational laboratories It is nearly impossible to prepare a student perfectly for their future career out of a classroom The best way to emulate that environment is to simply throw yourself into it My undergraduate research experience has been and continues to be the single most beneficial element of my education at the University of Iowa You get a personal connection with a faculty member which is very good for letters of recommendation I also think research benefits you academically Normally in classes we are required to memorize facts and equations to use on the tests Being involved in research has changed that Research requires an individual to learn to problem solve When experiments don t work or you get results you weren t expecting you don t just give up You investigate why things didn t work and what you could do next time to get a better outcome Professionally I was working with board certified music therapists a certification I am working towards in my degree This really gave me a realistic look into the work music therapists do and how they can help enhance rehabilitation therapies in a medical setting Personally I grew in my speaking abilities and approaching individuals in a comfortable manner even though we had never met My research experience has allowed me to learn more than I was able to in regular coursework by giving me hands on experience in designing the experiments and simply learning and figuring things out as I went along It has also stretched me in learning to

  • What students say about presenting at research festivals... | Iowa Center for Research by Undergraduates
    not more valuable to know I got great practice talking about my work and it forced me to bring together all the pieces I ve been working on all semester to make a coherent presentation I also liked seeing my friends research I had a lot of fun It was talking about my work in a succinct manner to a wide ranging audience As the night went on I could tell that each time I explained my work it flowed more naturally and I was able to add parts that were relevant and remove parts that were overly complicated It helped me to understand my own research in a way I didn t realize just why I was doing it until someone asked me directl y I surprised myself with my answers The graduate student judges helped me become familiar with answering questions and it was a good practice to talk with non science people about my research I was nervous about presenting but I felt good after my first couple times talking to people I feel that I developed my oral skills in terms of presenting my research and I had fun talking to people building conversations with them about my research even though they had no idea what my topic was about beforehand It was a humbling experience in that way What I gained the most out of the experience was practice talking about my poster I felt very accomplished following my judging which was a complete 180 from the anxiety I was feeling beforehand The festival had a low intensity and welcoming atmosphere I had some reservations about presenting my work but I m glad I did Creating this poster helped me refine the paper I m writing for my honors thesis and gave me practice talking

  • What students say about the challenges of research... | Iowa Center for Research by Undergraduates
    this taught me that there are really two huge components to research a drive to succeed and a positive attitude and without having these two I would have never made as much progress as I did The main challenge was and is time management It was hard trying to choose between schoolwork and lab work especially around tests This was amplified by the fact that I enjoyed lab work far more than studying at times so it was a struggle to stay focused on school However I learned how to better handle the time I spent between the two and now it is not nearly as large of an issue I think that I would have waited a bit longer to start doing research There were things that I needed to know in order to do the research things that would have been covered in upcoming classes so I struggled and others had to take time to train me Not rushing to start is okay I would have taken more time to find and develop a project that was more interesting to me and that would have involved a greater variety of tasks and goals sometimes this made it harder to remain engaged and motivated for the duration of the project I would definitely tell others to be sure that you re interested in what you re doing There are definitely plenty of challenges that go into research When you are paving the way in a certain project you can t consult other literature to know what to expect You have to do it and come up with conclusions on your own I did experience that early this semester with one project Some of the results turned out bad and others pretty well I just know that it will take
