Symposium to be held virtually
Full schedule and links forthcoming
The world changed dramatically in the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic, sparking renewed interest in resiliency. Springing back and moving forward in the face of change and challenge is something that is faced by researchers, educators and professionals across all fields related to education. This year, the Graduate School of Education’s Student Research Symposium embraces the ideas embodied by the concept of resilience and welcomes research posters, papers, and proposals that touch on the ideas raised by that theme. The notion of resilience not only applies to the current challenges faced by students and other education professionals in light of the pandemic – it also sheds light on the work being done to successfully overcome unpredictable adversity.
This symposium is an exciting opportunity to leave our isolated home offices and work collaboratively, both within and across disciplines, to encourage students to share their experiences navigating the uncertainties of this new climate. Student participants will both display and demonstrate innovation by presenting their research centered around resiliency during these unprecedented times.
At UB, we constantly strive to inspire innovative ways for students to bridge the gap between research and practice.
The Symposium, which features the work pursued by students throughout the the Graduate School of Education, gives students a valuable opportunity to discuss their ideas in a scholarly environment.
Through this event, students can:
Submissions will be read in a blind review process, with those reviewing proposals looking for strength, accuracy and originality in research. Please adhere to the guidelines in the guideline/proposal form when submitting.
