6 Things You Might Be Doing Wrong With Your Research Assignments (and how to fix them)

This fall marks the 2nd anniversary of our involvement with our university's general education curriculum. That equals 4 semesters of flipping the classroom, spending one week with each 200 and 300 section, and adapting our classroom content for Internet classes as well. It also means that we've seen A LOT of research assignments--about 40 per semester. Below is a presentation we gave at a faculty teaching conference to help instructors build better research assignments. Oh! And Slides Carnival + Death to Stock Photo is now our favorite combination for presentation slides.
