Research Associate Professional Identity Development (RAPID) Program: Level 3
The Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning (TI) Research Associate (RA) Program holds the vision of creating a community of research, innovation, and excellence in undergraduate and graduate students employed at the TI. The Research Associate Professional Identity Development (RAPID) Program provides RAs an opportunity to enhance their TI training and learning by entering in self-study of the development of their professional identity. In Level Three, participants complete their self studies by reflecting on their learning and creating a proposal for an independent or collaborative project, publication, or initiative. This process supports RAs in developing their driving questions, articulating their interests, and identifying the appropriate avenues and methods to pursue both in the future.
