ITWS Faculty Workshop for Promoting Undergraduate Research
Thank you to all the students, faculty and advisory board members for making this years workshop a great success! Special Thanks for Lynn Andrea Stein, from Olin College, for coming to RPI to run our annual workshop. Students and instructors had a great discussion regarding the curriculum and the laboratory space.
Abstract: The IT and Web Science (ITWS) Program has inaugurated a new interdisciplinary undergraduate laboratory and project space designed to cultivate undergraduate research. The space is open not just to ITWS students, but all undergraduates, as well as graduate students and faculty members interested in engaging in highly interdisciplinary work that involves some IT or web science component. Our intent for this space is to foster guided research through a suite of faculty-defined projects that intersect with faculty research interests. The purpose of this workshop, which may be conducted in the form of a minor charette, will be to generate the initial set of defined projects for this new undergraduate research space.
