All College of Education graduate students are encouraged to participate in conference activities and to submit an abstract to present a poster. All submissions will be accepted. One person should be designated as the presenting author; this person should indicate the poster category and submit the poster title, an abstract, and the names of additional authors where prompted on the registration form.

Be prepared to give a ~three-minute explanation of your research and answer any questions posed by the judge(s) during your assigned session.

Please refer to the poster guidelines document for exact specifications on poster size, suggested content, and printing option. Select the category in which your poster topic best fits (see below). Recognition will be awarded to the top three posters in the following categories:

  • Administration, policy, and systems
  • Health and wellness
  • Language, literature, and digital literacies
  • Learning and teaching
  • Measurement, assessment, and evaluation
