Celebrating Student Research
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 Educational Studies Graduate Student Council student organization. With 85 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 24, 2017, at the Ohio Union. Three oral presentation sessions and two poster sessions were held. There were 16 oral and six poster presentations from the department of Educational Studies, 20 oral and 23 poster presentations from the department of Human Sciences and 11 oral and nine poster presentations from the department of Teaching and Learning.
The keynote speaker was Cheryl Achterberg, dean, College of Education and Human Ecology. Achterberg has been the dean of the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University since July 2008. Achterberg shared her expertise and insights with presenters and attendees during the luncheon.
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; 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 once again 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, City Barbeque and Donato’s Pizza.
Many thanks to all of the volunteers who gave their time to help with planning the forum, reviewing the proposals, facilitating the oral presentations, personing the check-in tables and putting up/tearing down posters before and after the poster sessions.
