Speed Networking Events for SIUE Researchers: Education-Related Research

Date: Thursday, October 24, 2:00-3:30, MUC, Missouri Room

The date for this event has passed. View the Researcher Profiles or return to the Speed Networking Home Page.
See Speed Networking Home Page for instructions, incentives and further details.

Practice your 3-minute “elevator speech” as you participate in a fast-paced, fun event meant to expose you to the excellent research on campus and inspire you to establish new, productive relationships. Researchers will share their topics in an accelerated fashion with a group of researchers sharing similar interests.

Interested attendees must R.S.V.P. to one of the following events. Seats are limited. Some preparation required—an inquiring mind and willingness to talk to others are a must! R.S.V.P. at ORP Registration Page

Education-related Research:

Whether in the K-12 arena, adult learning environments, or informal settings, education researchers generate evidence about strategies and interventions for student learning. Education research may range from studies that explore foundational learning in the human mind, to study of interactions between different variables, to the study of pedagogical method and intervention.
