Northwestern College graduate students took part in the inaugural Celebration of Research on Thursday. Six graduate students presented their work to fellow students, staff, faculty, family and community members. Each of the graduate students presented their research from the cumulating capstone course in their Master of Education program. Each student provided an abstract, poster, and artifacts for the event. Their research covered a wide range of topics. Overall, the projects contained practical action research that the graduate students had completed in their own classrooms.
The research papers can be viewed in the institutional repository, NWCommons. They are also indexed and included in WorldCat. The event was a fantastic celebration capping National Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week. Plans are already being put into place for the second Celebration of Research in the spring of 2018!
