On the Road to Scholarship: Conferences and Publishing for Service-Learning Students

April 16, 2014
CC: UC 246 | DC: HNS 402 | GC: Nesbitt 2214 | OC: Classroom 312/VC2

Facilitated by: Sheri Hardee, CTLL Service-Learning Faculty Fellow
As part of high-impact and engaging practices, higher education institutions are placing increased focus on undergraduate research, especially on student conference presentations and student publications.  With so many strong service-learning projects at the University of North Georgia, this is a prime area in which to strengthen our emphasis on undergraduate research.  This workshop is meant to help faculty and staff guide students engaged in service-learning in presenting on their projects and practices at conferences or writing about their work for publication.  In this workshop session, we will examine the conference process, including possible conference venues, proposal writing, and funding.  We will hear from students who have presented on their work and who can serve as guides for our students.  In addition, we will look at possible publication options for students and how to mentor students through the writing for publication process.

This brown bag will explore the ways using Geographic Information Sciences can open up possibilities in literary analysis, pedagogy, and undergraduate research. To do so, Stacy Turner will discuss the FUSE project she and student John Dees completed in Summer 2013. Her presentation will also touch on the process of applying for funding, utilizing student workers, and generating ideas for interdisciplinary research. The session will devote time to discussion and work-shopping of other creative research ideas.
