Graduate Research Showcase 2014 (Education)

The Graduate Research Showcase is a collaboration between Elementary Education Graduate Student Association (EE: GSA) and Secondary Education Graduate Association (SEGSA) that provides a forum for graduate students to share their emerging research ideas, experiences, and findings. The showcase is meant to be inclusive and welcomes a variety of approaches, research methodologies, topics, and ideas from emerging scholars in both of our departments, the Faculty of Education, and the university community. The Showcase is designed to be a safe place for graduate students to gain experience writing proposals and presenting at an academic conference, and to receive constructive feedback on their writing and work.
