R.E.A.L. Inquiry: Research Experience for Aspiring Leaders, the undergraduate research initative Longwood University has developed as its Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), uses the development of research skills and the practice of research as a vehicle for improving students’ critical thinking, information literacy, and communication skills.
The R.E.A.L. Inquiry initiative has three overarching goals:
- To improve students’ learning by promoting their discovery of new knowledge through research.
- To improve students’ learning by facilitating student-faculty collaboration in research.
- To improve students’ learning by advancing an understanding of the importance of disseminating the results of research in academic and civic communities.
