HARVARD GRADUATE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION HOSTS
The 24th Annual Student Research Conference
March 11, 2019
The Multiplicity of Research:
Identifying and Meeting the Needs of All Students
Each year, educational institutions serve an increasingly diverse group of students. How can educators meet the demands of this increased diversity? This year’s conference “The Multiplicity of Research: Identifying and Meeting the Needs of All Students” will provide educators with the opportunity to share how they are reflecting, analyzing, and accounting for the diversity in their classrooms to ultimately support each student and highlight the assets that they bring into their learning experiences.
- We invite educators to present their ideas in response to questions such as:
- How do we develop tools that reliably capture students’ knowledge and skills?
- How do we examine our current educational climates to identify systemic inequities and exclusion in institutional practices and policies?
- How do students’ cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds impact their learning?
- What are evidence-based classroom practices that promote inclusion and diversity?
- How are educational institutions supporting the holistic development of today’s diverse students?
- How can professional development promote educators’ intercultural awareness and competencies?
These issues will drive Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Student Research Conference. Now in its 24th year, the conference brings together student researchers from within the Harvard community and around the country, each of whom are considering the tough issues facing the education sector today and making their research matter for real-world impact. The conference also welcomes a host of informed and influential academics from the field to provide support and feedback on your work.
If you are a student, have conducted interesting research, and find yourself considering some of the questions outlined above, Harvard’s SRC 2019 might be for you. We are looking for thought-provokers, conversation-starters, and research-into-practitioners who will help us explore some of the most important questions informing the education sector today.
