POSTER TITLE: The DBER REU program at RIT: A Model for Virtual Research Experiences

THEME: Student experiences and affect

Hello! My name is Kate Wright. I am an Associate Professor in the School of Life Sciences at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). I, along with my awesome colleagues, run a multi-disciplinary REU program in STEM Education Research-- and have been doing so since 2016. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ran our 2020 REU program in a virtual format; something none of us had ever done before! Although not without challenges, our mentees were highly productive, felt a sense of community and reported learning and growing in valuable ways. We are excited to share a snapshot of what a virtual undergraduate research program can look like and share “Lessons Learned” for others to consider.
