Workshop Descriptions

How to Get Started in Research and Inquiry :   This workshop, offered each Month, will discuss the beginning steps on how to get started in undergraduate research and inquiry, including what is research, how to get involved in research and inquiry, how to contact faculty members, and much more! 

Research Ethics:Here students will learn about the projects that need to have research compliance through the Division of Research and the roads to take in order to conduct ethical research. 

Data Interpretation – Understanding the Method and Results Sections of a Research Article:   A common practice in reviewing research articles is reading the Introduction and then skipping to the Discussion section.  However, the Method and Results sections often contain valuable information that is critical to truly understanding the research.  The purpose of this presentation is to highlight and interpret the contents of the Method and Results sections.  The contents of current research articles will be explained and interpreted in an easy to understand fashion.  

Creating a Poster and Oral Presentation:  Students will be assisted in the process of creating a poster and oral research presentation, just in time for the annual OURI Undergraduate Research Symposium! 

How to Write a Manuscript: Topics will include formatting of scientific research manuscripts, peer-reviewed versus non-peer reviewed journals, tips from going from a presentation to a publication, introduction to the peer-review process, revising and resubmitting, impact factors, and more.
Attending a Conference: Topics will include identifying appropriate conferences in your discipline, submitting an abstract, funding opportunities, getting the most from your conference experience, networking, and representing your institution.
University Libraries: FAU’s Library hosts a variety of workshops that can assist throughout the research process such as conducting a literature review, APA help and much more! View the spring schedule here!
