Students often find it difficult to maintain focus and retain all of the information presented to them in college. To aid in the retention and understanding of new information, experiential learning techniques such as "CRE" are currently being developed, right here at LTU. CRE (Course-Based Research Experience) increases research exposure for undergraduate students, which aids in curriculum comprehension by providing all students with an experience-based set of skills. This disruption of the standard undergraduate teaching structure allows students to learn new concepts by working on real problems to produce empirical data. In this talk, Xamaka shares his CRE experience and how it has aided him in his own research; furthermore, he offers insight as to how CRE helps students get more involved in their studies.
