Quality enhancement of Undergraduate Research – further strategies to increase student engagement in research dissemination

This article updates and extends the range of strategies available to increase student engagement with undergraduate research dissemination. It evaluates the ten strategies suggested in 2008 and then extends the range of approaches in an attempt to share the benefits of research communication with a wider range of student researchers. The paper acknowledges the rapid progress that has been made over the last eight years in disseminating undergraduate research and the possibilities for staff to frame these as a structured progression for students.
