Interdisciplinary perspectives of Education: Starting conversations and building connections
This year’s theme reflects the valuable interdisciplinary nature of Education research. As graduate students, we work diligently to become experts in our area of study, a necessary and vital outcome of graduate education. However, as our expertise grows, it should also be paired with an understanding of the broader realm of research in Education. Keeping in touch with different perspectives and approaches helps us to put our work into context, to understand Education research more broadly, and to set the groundwork for partnerships and collaborations. With this in mind, we hope that this year’s symposium will start conversations and build connections among graduate students.
