The event also included oral research presentations by postdoctoral fellows and poster presentations by fellows, medical residents and graduate students.

Education students presented their research on student and professional development, as well as practitioner outlook.

Betty R. Smith presented “Effect of an Inclusive Education Setting on the Performance of Students with Disabilities: A School Study.” Justin Cumbee and Amy Wingate presented “The Effect of Changing the Habits and Promoting ‘Personal Responsibility in Determining their Education’ (P.R.I.D.E.) on Student Performance: A High School Study.” Jennifer Holton presented “Impact of Targeted Professional Development (TDP) for Teachers on the Performance of Students in Identified Areas of Weakness in Mathematics.” Natalie Lemacks presented “The Impact of Education Blogs on Instructional Practices, Teacher Attitudes, and Teacher Outlooks on Education.” And Jessica Weber presented “Teacher Perceptions of Response to Intervention.”

The event gave students a chance to sharpen their presentation skills before exhibiting their work at national meetings and conferences; and to receive constructive feedback about their work. Presentations are judged by faculty.
