Description

The purpose of the convention is to provide an education and learning conference for faculty, recent Ed.D. graduates, and students from across the United States. The conference will feature faculty/research presentations, and Ed.D. dissertation presentations, and roundtable presentations of dissertations in process. The conference is a venue for faculty and researchers to present at a national conference as well as an opportunity for exceptional students to present nationally. Specifically, the conference focuses on the scholarship of 1) discovery, 2) integration, 3) application, and 4) teaching (Boyer, 1990).

APPLICATIONS FOR PRESENTATIONS

A national board of seven reviewers will consider each application. An invitation to present will be extended to each accepted presenter. An accepted presentation includes the requirement of the submission of a written article for publication in the Journal of Action Research.

1-Academic Presentations are in three categories:

Faculty/Research Presentations: Faculty and researchers are encouraged to present proposals in educational philosophy, strategies and methods, classroom management, assessment, content knowledge, or integration of faith and learning. Faculty/student (individual student or group of students) presentations may apply in this category. Accepted presenters will author a 500-1500 word article for publication in the Journal of Action Research.

Ed.D. graduate dissertations presentations: Ed.D. degree granting institutions may submit applications for recent doctoral graduated (2008-2010). Accepted presenters will make a 20-minute presentation and author a 500-1500 word article for publication in the Journal of Action Research. Excellent dissertations display the scholarship of 1) discovery, 2) integration, 3) application, and 4) teaching (Boyer, 1990).

Faculty sponsored student presentations: Students at the undergraduate and graduate level are encouraged to submit applications under the supervision of a faculty member. Student proposals require a faculty sponsor and should exemplify exceptional work. Accepted presenters will author a 250-500 word article for publication for the Journal of Action Research.

2-Dissertation in Progress Presentations are in two categories:

Dissertations entering year two (y2): these are roundtable discussions with students and advisors. Ed.D. students, faculty and guests will participate in a round-table discussion of on-going dissertation research.

Dissertations entering year three (y3): these are roundtable discussions with students and advisors. Ed.D. students, faculty and guests will participate in a round-table discussion of on-going dissertation research.
