      Kirsten Crossgrove   [Biological Sciences]

      • I created a D2L site to help manage undergraduate research in my lab.  The site contains basic information about undergraduate research, including links to the UR program web page.  In addition, it contains journal articles relevant to the projects in my lab, lab protocols, previous undergraduate research grants and posters and other materials that might be of interest to research students.  In a survey, 3 out of 4 students used the site in spring 2012 and thought it was at least somewhat helpful, primarily for the background papers, examples of UR day posters and information about UR day.   The students all agreed, however, that they preferred editing proposals and posters using email instead of the dropbox.  In conclusion, the D2L site worked better as a static repository of useful information for research students than as an active communication tool.  Anyone interested in copying a template of the D2L site should contact me at crossgrk@uww.edu or x1678.
