Give research students an initial set of papers to read to help them generate their own potential research questions.

  • Encourage students to find additional papers related to the papers that you provide to them.
  • Students may generate strong research questions based on these papers, but you should also be prepared for the possibility that many or all of their ideas will be inappropriate and that students may need additional feedback or support.
