Further information

The undergraduate learning and teaching research internship scheme (ULTRIS)

The undergraduate learning and teaching research internship scheme (ULTRIS) is an innovative program established at UWA in 2009.

ULTRIS focuses attention on research into aspects of teaching and learning by undergraduate students enrolled in their second or third year of study. The internship provides opportunities for selected students to have a practical research experience, promote a greater awareness of the scholarship of teaching and learning and provide the university with context-relevant information to inform teaching and learning at UWA.

Summaries of the 2010 (the first-year experience), and the collective research findings for 2009 (staff-student interaction outside the classroom) are provided.
