The 2016 Robert Macmillan Graduate Research in Education Symposium is now accepting submissions!
The theme for this year’s conference, being held in the Faculty of Education on Friday, April 1, 2016, is Challenges in Education: Local and Global Perspectives.
We welcome submissions for paper presentations, posters, and creative products that consider this theme from a variety of perspectives, local to global including, but not limited to: social justice, LGBT2Q, new technologies, applied linguistics, leadership, policy, Indigenous pedagogies, and more.
There are opportunities for both in person and distance presentations this year. Distance presentations will be facilitated through VoIP technology.
Submissions due 19 February 2016 (11:59 EST).
Please submit your abstract via our online registration system.
The Research Office will be covering printing costs for any Western Faculty of Education graduate student who is creating a poster for presentation at this year’s Symposium. All that is asked in return is that you permit them to display your poster in the faculty at some point following the Symposium.
As in past years, a Symposium committee member will co-ordinate the printing process. These details and a deadline date to submit poster files (via email , mid-March) will be communicated in due course.
