Today's entry is a highlight referral to my good friend's, Ken O'Donnell's, recent post about undergraduate research opportunities on his cutting-edge higher educational blog -- “Diffusions of Light.” http://diffusionoflight.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/a-new-economy-of-research/ .
My readers may have had the great, good fortune of seeing one or more of Ken's masterful presentations at a recent WASC Conference or on a Cal State campus.
This week Ken featured an exemplary undergraduate research project at the University of Richmond that can be tapped into right now. Its title is "Visualizing Emancipation" : http://dsl.richmond.edu/emancipation/.
Ken also provided a link to a range of case studies from the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education: http://www.nitle.org/casestudies/ that we can ponder and be illuminated by.
