The First Annual Community Gathering of Discipline-Based Education Researchers (1/8)

Time: January 8, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Location: Old Chem, Room 615
West Campus

Target Audience: All faculty, post-docs, and administrators interested in and/or focused on discipline-based education research

Research Office: Research Development

Please RSVP as lunch will be served
(Please send dietary restrictions to teri.reed@uc.edu)


Are you engaged in evidence-generating activities in education research? Are you focused on some aspect of the education continuum: discipline-based preK-12 education, undergraduate education, graduate education, teacher education, faculty development, workforce development, etc.? Are you looking for a community of colleagues to advance your research/scholarly efforts?

High quality evidence-generating education research combines knowledge of a discipline, the challenges of student success in that discipline and the research of student success, generally.  If you identify with this type of research, consider attending the first annual community gathering of discipline-based education research (DBER). This is a networking opportunity to share and learn about other’s interests and expertise with the goal of building future collaborations and developing projects in the DBER area.

What will be shared:  Time has been allotted to share via a networking exercise participant’s general bio, their research questions or agenda, researcher expertise, and needs. All participants will be expected to create and submit a brief interest and needs sheet (in a template provided at this link) by Friday, January 4 at noon. Once created, please place single sheet using the naming convention shown in the example files or email final sheet to teri.reed@uc.edu. This single sheet will serve as our community building mechanism and will be shared ahead of time to all participants. This will not be a formal presentation, but a small group activity.

Organizers:   
Teri Reed, Assistant Vice President of Research Development, Office of Research                                                                                                Victoria Wangia-Anderson, Associate Professor – Educator and Program Director, Clinical & Health Information Science, College of Allied Health Sciences
