The Research and Recognition Event was created to provide a forum for graduate students, faculty, and staff interested in educational research to share their ideas. The next session is at 3 p.m. Monday, February 29, in 551 DeGarmo Hall. Refreshments will be provided.
The featured faculty members will include Guy Banicki, assistant professor in the Department of Educational Administration and Foundations; Sonia Kline, assistant professor in the School of Teaching and Learning; and Sharon Doubet, associate professor in the Department of Special Education.
To kick off the event, Banicki will present “PK-12 Teachers and Illinois Partnerships.” His work has uncovered the dispositions of PK-12 teachers with respect to the Illinois partnership advancing rigorous training through the coursework of Building Community Engagement through Collaboration.
Kline will hit upon “What counts as context?” in elementary education literacy research. Her presentation, titled “Contextualizing Computer-Mediated Literate Activity in the Language Arts Classroom” contends that the answer to this question has become further complicated by the use of networked computer environments in educational settings.
At the end of the session, Doubet will motivate faculty members to plan their sabbatical in her talk “Sabbatical: Refreshing Your Research!” Doubet says that while the opportunities, options, and open-calendar of a trip can be exciting, it can also be daunting. Sharing her own research renewal experience in Romania, Doubet will guide discussion around the topic.
