20-MINUTE RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM SESSIONS
These 20–minute sessions showcase leading research on rural education issues. Proposals for research presentations should be blinded and provide a summary of the research that addresses the following: background and relevance to rural education and the conference, purpose and research questions, method, findings (preliminary for proposal or finalized/approved for presentation), discussion of implications for rural education, and references. Research proposals will be peer reviewed by members of the NREA research committee and selected based on reviewer scoring and recommendations. Authors of top-scoring research proposals will compete for the distinguished Howard A. Dawson Best Research Paper Award. Submitting authors of a small number of top scoring research proposals will be invited to send the full paper to be read and judged by the awards subcommittee. Learn more about research symposium submission requirements.
These sessions are intended to go into more depth around innovative or promising practices aligned with the event theme and guiding questions in a 60-minute format. The style of your session can range from an in-depth and interactive learning experience, to a panel discussion, to an informal conversation where audience participation is the main component.
RESEARCH POSTER SESSIONS
Present your work in a poster format, offering an abbreviated way to present research in rural education. Poster proposals will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the NREA research committee and selected based on reviewer scoring and recommendations. Learn more about research poster session requirements.
