Research Conference

The College of Education Research Conference is an annual opportunity for researchers to learn, engage, and interact with colleagues. Sponsored by the College of Education’s Office of Research and Graduate Education, activities include a keynote, networking/poster session, and competitions aimed at increasing the awareness of research, funding, and interdisciplinary work.

Registration is open for the Mary Frances Early College of Education 2023 Research Conference.

The 2023 Research Conference is back live in Aderhold Hall on May 2. Conference events are scheduled from 7:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.

Researchers from across the College will find a variety of ways to learn, engage and interact with colleagues, and meet potential collaborators during sessions that have been developed to highlight the range of studies and interests across the College. This year’s activities include student and faculty poster sessions, research presentations by faculty from across departments and centers, and a group activity. Faculty are also invited to volunteer to be poster judges; please note your availability on the registration form.

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.

Discovering the Pros and Cons of Multiple Research Methods Faculty Panel

Join us for a great conversation with three of our faculty members about their perspectives on research methods. They will discuss their responses to the following questions.

  1. What is your primary research interest, how did you develop this interest, and what research methodology do you use across most of your studies?
  2. What are the strengths of the research methodology that you employ? Conversely, what are the weaknesses of this methodology?
  3. How might another research methodology allow you to overcome some of the challenges faced with the methods you typically employ? When have you or why have you not employed another methodology?

Dawg Tank DEI and Social Justice Competition

The Offices of Research and Graduate Education and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are sponsoring a research design competition for graduate students modeled after the popular television show Shark Tank. Graduate students interested in diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice will pitch their research ideas focused on the experiences of (an) underrepresented group and/or international populations with cultural constructs and/or theoretical frameworks. The top proposals/presentations will vie for $800 to be distributed in varying amounts depending on the presented needs and scientific rigor.
