Center for the Arts, UB North Campus
This year's theme — “Education in Action: Critical Thinking, Praxis, Possibilities” — challenges students to reimagine the possibilities of 21-century education through the lens of their own research. Presentations may discuss theories, models, empirical findings or practices that further the role of educational institutions in today’s society. We encourage presenters to envision their work as a critical conversation for improving the educational experiences for every student.
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:
• Make connections with other students and
professionals in their field
• Present and discuss their research in a professional, welcoming forum
• Enhance their professional development
• Prepare for regional, national and international conferences that are important to their field of study
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.
