The Research Wednesdays Speaker Series is designed to provide a platform for explorations of new ways of conducting and disseminating educational research. The program also provides an opportunity for discussion around new methods of mentoring doctoral students in an effort to enhance their development as researchers. While the series offers COE faculty members an opportunity to hear innovative and thought-provoking speakers, it also fills an important professional development need by providing access to cutting-edge researchers at the state and national levels.
The speaker series was developed in direct response to the recommendation of the COE Research Committee of the 2008 Strategic Planning Committee. The COE Research Committee recommended that a research and scholarship colloquium be established where faculty and students share their work with colleagues and the community at large. The Research Wednesday Speaker Series was then collaboratively organized by Drs. Susan Ogletree and Sheryl Gowen with input from Dr. Randy Kamphaus and chairs of COE departments.
Research Wednesdays is held at 12 noon in the College of Education Forum, Room 1030. Information about the speakers is available to the general public on the COE website at http://education.gsu.edu and the presentations are available for download at iTunes U.
An RSVP is required to attend this event. To confirm your attendance, please contact Erin Whitney in the COE’s Educational Research Bureau at (404) 413-8090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
