  • GSE Research Day on April 1st
    Dear EdU and Education Minor Community:

    On April 1, 2011 UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Education (GSE) will hold its annual Research Day event from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. with a reception to follow. GSE Research Day offers UC Berkeley students and faculty an opportunity to present their education-related work to the GSE and affiliate communities in a format similar to the annual meetings of American Educational Research Association (AERA) or other professional conferences. Students, faculty, and other interested
    individuals are invited to participate either by presenting their education-related work or by attending the scheduled sessions.

    Proposals are now being accepted and are due no later than Friday March 18th (presentation formats are described below). Registration for attendees will
    continue through March 28th. To register either as a presenter or as a guest go to http://gse.berkeley.edu/admin/events/gseresearchday.html and fill out the application on the page. No proposals submitted by March 18th will be rejected (except under unusual circumstances); the information they contain will be used to group and organize the events of the day.

    So sign up for GSE Research Day! Take advantage of this great opportunity.  If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to volunteer to help us run
    the event, please email us at researchday@lists.berkeley.edu.

    FIVE Possible presentation formats:
    A. Paper Presentations (15 -20 minutes): Paper sessions provide authors an opportunity to present an abbreviated version of their work. The 'paper' presented may be a finished product or a work in progress.
    B. Poster Session (45 minutes to an hour): Poster sessions combine graphic display of materials with the opportunity for individualized, informal discussion for the presenter's research.
    C. Consultation Roundtable (40 minutes to an hour): Working on a paper?
    Non-GSE lists: 1st invitation
    Wishing you could talk about it with someone? Bring an artifact that can be discussed and worked on in a 40 minute period. Consultation Roundtables
    allow maximum interaction with the presenters. Individual presenters are assigned numbered tables in a large meeting room where interested persons may gather for discussion with the presenter about his or her paper or project.
    D. Group Presentation or Symposium: Presentations are grouped according to a common theme, with each presentation adding a complementary or supplementary perspective on the topic. Choose this option if you and several presenters want to discuss your work together.
    E. Interactive Sessions: Presentations that typically focus on research involving a designed artifact, e.g., a computer simulation, robot, questionnaire, or group activity etc. Attendees are invited to work with the artifact and respond to prompts as a means of sharing an experience that is core to a subsequent explication of the rationale and/or findings of a study.
