Call for presenters! 2007 ESU Research and Creativity Forum

Here's an opportunity for you to show the ESU campus some of the outstanding things that you are doing!

The Office of Graduate Studies and Research is sponsoring the annual research and creativity forum on Thursday, April 12, beginning at 1:30 p.m. in the Colonial Ballroom, on the ESU campus.

The poster session will be held from 1:30-4:00 with the awards ceremony beginning at 3:15. The posters will be judged by three faculty members - criteria are included on the second page of this announcement. Awards, in the form of travel funds, will be given for the best faculty poster and the best student poster ($500 for the faculty award and $300 for the student award). ALL POSTERS ARE WELCOME! You don't have to submit a competitive poster.

If you would like to exhibit a poster, please complete this form http://www.emporia.edu/research/documents/Poster-invite_001.pdf and return it, along with a brief abstract, to Pam Fillmore via email by Friday, March 16. The abstracts will appear in the printed program.

POSTERS may be computer-based. They don't have to be on a POSTER.

Those of you who presented your master's projects in December should consider this. And, those of you who are in the process of your doing master's project now might want to consider this, too! And, I think MANY of the projects that ALL of you are doing (possibly part of one of our classes) would be great for this. It will look really nice on your resume :)

***A special note to those of you who are at a distance: We are aware that this is a campus-based program and that it excludes you from participation. A real bummer! Hopefully in the future, online/web-based posters for this forum will be a reality. I will keep fighting the fight on your behalf!

Once again, you can download the announcement/proposal form, here:


Deadline - Friday, March 16

Please an email to me mchildre@emporia.edu , if you are interested or have any questions. If you should decide to submit a poster session, please cc: me on your email/attached form to Pam Fillmore fillmorp@emporia.edu

I hope you will join us in this celebration and exhibition of research and graduate studies at ESU!

(Unfortunately, I won't be able to present or be there for this one; the first one that I have missed! I will be presenting at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) in Chicago) However, I am sure that my IDT faculty colleagues will be at the forum to support you!
