UW College of Education Plans Research Symposium
The University of Wyoming College of Education Scholarship and Research Symposium, an annual event highlighting the scholarly work and accomplishments of faculty and graduate students, takes place Friday, March 7, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Hosted by the UW Department of Professional Studies, the symposium provides an informal and supportive opportunity for faculty and graduate students to share information about current research activities. The event serves to recognize and value faculty and graduate student commitment to scholarship and research productivity.
This year’s symposium, the college’s fourth, features a keynote address by Richard Crandall, director of the Wyoming Department of Education, and a lunchtime presentation by UW President Dick McGinity. That session, like the rest of the symposium, is free and open to the public, and students are particularly encouraged to attend.
The symposium will feature two types of presentations: scholarly paper presentations and poster presentations. A complete schedule will be posted this week.
This year, the symposium will use a repository sponsored by the Wyoming Scholars Repository (WySR), a UW Libraries service dedicated to preserving and providing open access to the scholarly and creative works produced by the community of researchers, faculty and students. Abstracts and additional symposium-related materials will be archived in the repository. The College of Education Research Symposium will be housed at http://repository.uwyo.edu/education_symp/.
