A Presentation for the Lewis Honors College & for EPE 301 Students at the University of Kentucky
On Tuesday, October 13th, 2020, I was invited to give a talk for the Lewis Honors College at the University of Kentucky on “Undergraduate Research Beyond the Classroom.” This talk is also potentially of interest to students in my EPE 301 course on Education in American Culture. Really, this talk is for any undergraduate who might be interested in taking advantage of opportunities to engage in research or its dissemination beyond the classroom. The handout I used can be opened here or by clicking on the Adobe logo on the right.
Students in EPE 301 can use this video as 1 hour of their field experience observations. The dangers of COVID-19 prompted the creation of this option. Most students are probably not studying the subject of this talk for their papers, but all are working on research in their undergraduate coursework. In that context, students might find the content of this video useful for taking their work beyond the classroom. In addition, students interested in an issue about which they suspect that I could offer some useful thoughts can email me with their questions or comments as part of their field experience work: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the talk, I reference three texts that aren’t mentioned on the handout. Those books were:
Allen, David. Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity (New York: Penguin Books, 2015).
Brewer, Robert Lee. Writer’s Market 2020 (New York: Penguin Random House, 2019).
Brewer, Robert Lee. Writer’s Market Guide to Literary Agents 2020 (New York: Penguin Random House, 2019).
