2016 EHE Student Research Forum
The EHE Student Research Forum is an annual event that highlights the research of our graduate and undergraduate students. The forum is sponsored by the EHE Office of Research and was co-sponsored this year by the Quantitative Research, Evaluation and Measurement (QREM) Student Organization. With over 100 student presentations, both oral and poster, student researchers presented their completed, in-progress and proposed studies as well as literature reviews and instrument validations.
This year’s event was held on Friday, February 12, 2016, at the Ohio Union. Three oral presentation sessions and two poster sessions were held. There were 15 oral and nine poster presentations from Educational Studies, 18 oral and 24 poster presentations from Human Sciences and 17 oral and 11 poster presentations from Teaching and Learning.
The keynote speaker was Shayne Piasta, assistant professor of Teaching and Learning and faculty associate in the Crane Center for Early Childhood Research and Policy. Piasta’s research primarily focuses on early literacy development and how such development is best supported during the preschool and elementary years. Her work emphasizes the use of rigorous empirical methods to identify and evaluate educational programs and practices and has been funded by the Institute of Education Sciences and the National Institutes of Health.
In addition to oral and poster presentations, representatives from several offices, centers and student groups across campus were on hand at exhibit tables to answer questions and provide information about their office or group and their services. Exhibitors included: Career Counseling and Support Services; Office of Distance Education and ELearning; EHE Office of Diversity and Inclusion; EHE Research Methodology Center; Quantitative Research, Evaluation and Measurement (QREM) Student Organization; the Undergraduate Research Office; and University Libraries – Research Commons.
This year’s event featured a door prize drawing during the keynote lunch, and a raffle drawing with “passports” that attendees could have stamped or signed during attended sessions to qualify for the drawing. This year’s raffle donors included The Ohio State University Department of Athletics, BalletMet Columbus, CAPA Columbus, Columbus Symphony Orchestra, Chile Verde Cafe, City Barbeque and Donatos Pizza.
The 2017 EHE Student Research Forum will be held on Friday, February 24, 2017, at the Ohio Union. Additional details will be available on our website this fall.
