After working with several undergraduate research assistants, I realized there was a demand for an undergraduate course on research design that would train undergraduates in research techniques and help them generate original ideas for honors theses. I first taught the course as a directed reading in spring quarter of 2011. The next year, the department allowed department credit for the course, co-taught as a seminar by a team of graduate students. The course introduced research design concepts, included regular one-on-one meetings between each student and an assigned mentor, and presentations of original research ideas to department faculty at the end of the quarter.
