“How might we help scale paid undergraduate research experiences.”
That’s the problem the Office of Student Affairs and Office of Research Affairs is trying to solve with The Design Lab – and we need your help.
During this fast-paced project, designers will be introduced to the process of Design Thinking. Staff will collaborate to create new opportunities for paid undergraduate research projects to augment the Triton undergraduate experience. In particular, students who have yet to see themselves as researchers or who, by way of financial stressors, have to choose between a paid work experience and a non-paid research opportunity.
Each participant will share the problem they see, and team up to create a prototype of a potential solution. We’ll provide feedback, and introduce you to others trying to solve the same problem. After this workshop, like-minded people have the option to join teams with varying focuses during the development phase of SPUR.
Join us for this Residence Life team-only workshop and leave with a better understanding of how they may scale paid undergraduate research opportunities at UC San Diego.
