Student-Organized College of Education "Educational Research Exchanges" from the Student and Former Student Perspective.
Guthrie, Abbie; Henson, Robin K.
The purpose of this paper is to discuss one promising and proven way some colleges of education (COEs) have attempted to develop academic climate and facilitate graduate student research activity. The focus is on the role of student-organized internal research conferences in the transformation of student to social scientist. The benefits these internal conferences offer to both students and faculty in particular and COEs in general are discussed. To accomplish this objective and to illustrate the impact internal research conferences can have on the scholarly development of graduate students, the researchers' experiences as participants in such conferences are presented as case studies, offering the views of a current student and a former student turned faculty member.
