I recently attended the CUR meeting at DePauw in Greencastle, Indiana.  The issue of physics education students having some research experience during their undergraduate studies came up.  The group all agreed that it would be of great value for some sort of research to be incorporated into the curriculum.  What benefits would this bring to a future teacher?  What are some of the problems that students face that would discourage or keep them from signing up for a research experience?
