Keeping up with trends

For special education students, undergraduate research can have two important purposes. First, it provides the important experience of conducting a research project — immensely enriching undergraduate opportunity. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, educators are engaged in continuing education and professional development throughout their careers, always improving methods and knowledge. Undergrad research is way to get started on that career objective with the help and guidance of faculty.

What's it all about?

Whether you are a special education major or minor, taking advantage of the chance to collaborate with faculty in research can significantly enhance your undergraduate experience. Student and faculty collaborative research is pretty unusual at the undergrad level, but UW-Eau Claire is dedicated to fostering this advanced opportunity for Blugolds.

Here is one recent example of a research project in special education for 2016-17:

Focus of the study

Kirstin Rossi and Cathy Thorsen are conducting a research project called “Inquiry & Exploration of Teacher Candidate Reflective Practice through Analysis of International Immersion Experience Digital Stories,” a study for Unified Early Childhood majors, as the culmination of an immersion experience in central Europe. Students will develop skills in reflective communication, reflective thinking, and cognitive processes through their digital stories.
