Annual Research Symposium


THEME: Research: The pathway to quality education & lifelong learning

4th Research Symposium
Fredrick C. Hobdy Assembly Center
April 28-29, 2011

This event is produced and sponsored by the College of Education at Grambling State University. The Symposium was conceived to allow (senior and) junior-level faculty members and students (graduate and undergraduate) the opportunity to present their research projects and ideas in a nurturing and supportive environment (where workshops on writing and publishing research would be provided). This year our keynote speaker is Dr. Michael T. Nettles of Educational Testing Service.

The College of Education’s 2011 Research Symposium will focus on research, theory and the exchange of ideas regarding educational processes from a research perspective. Education was once approached as time certain events (elementary, secondary, postsecondary) culminating in a credential. However, it has evolved into a much more complex, comprehensive and continuous process that spans a lifetime with a variety of outcomes that contribute to individuals’ quality of life and the productivity of a nation. This year’s symposium explores ways in which professionals from all disciplines, particularly education, inform best practices in P-12 schools, colleges and universities, and other human services settings in order to foster learning and human development across generations.

Deadline for Submissions: April 5, 2011.
