Education Research Projects

          EAU CLAIRE — Education students at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will share the results of semester-long diversity and education research projects during the Research Expo Nov. 30.
          The Research Expo, which will run from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center, will feature projects designed by 100 students enrolled in the Foundation of Education’s Social Foundations of Human Relations course, taught by Dr. Cynthia Gray-Mash and Dr. Katherine Rhoades. The event has been held each semester since the fall of 1998.
          The projects introduce students to research as it’s applied to the understanding of cultural complexity and reflective processes that strengthen professional practice in teaching and other professions, Gray-Mash said. Students select topics, develop methodology and venture into communities to study culture, using ethnography or probing into issues of diversity and discrimination in and beyond Eau Claire, she said.
          The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Gray-Mash at (715) 836-5587 or gray@uwec.edu, or contact Rhoades at (715) 836-3672 or rhoadeka@uwec.edu.
