Participating in research projects entails many benefits for students, including the onboarding of new teaching methods and strategies, becoming a reflective practitioner, engaging in a different model of professional learning, learning how to behave like a researcher, improving writing skills, and pursuing further degrees. Collaboration between faculty members and students (often teacher or pre-service teacher researchers) is critical (Brew, 2013; Johnson, 2000; Ries, 2018). Strickland (1988) posits that teacher researchers need to be engaged in every step of the research process and allowed to take ownership of the work. It should be thought of as helping to create lifelong researchers, for "if students are properly trained, prepared, and supervised, the student-faculty collaboration can be a memorable and successful experience. It may even inspire the career goal of a future professor or two" (Fenn, 2010, p. 259).
