Two poster sessions will highlight graduate student and faculty research.

College of Education faculty and UGA libraries personnel will lead research professional development roundtables in three 15-minute mini-sessions. Topics will range from methodology, ORCID, mentor-student relationships, navigating the job market, academic appointments in higher education, and starting a research program.

Three-Minute Thesis Competition

Selling our Scholarship (3MT-SOS) Doctoral Student Competition

We are once again offering a competition for our doctoral students, adapted from the UGA Graduate School's event. The Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland.

The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of students' capacities to explain their research effectively in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.

Student Poster Competition

Each year, the College of Education Research Conference offers graduate students a chance to compete in a research poster competition. Submissions are welcome from all disciplines across the College; the Office of Research and Graduate Education reserves the right to accept submissions based on specific criteria and professional standards.

2020 poster categories include:

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

Below are winning posters from the 2017 College of Education Research Conference.
