The Robert Macmillan Graduate Research in Education Symposium (GRiES) is an annual event that is organized by graduate students at the Faculty of Education. The theme for 2017 is Identities in Education: Yours, Mine, Ours. GRiES will be held on April 7th, 2017
The Symposium provides graduate students the opportunity to share their education-related research with the wider community. Presentation formats include posters, round tables, papers, and creative formats such as song or art. Unable to attend the Symposium in person? As with the previous two years, we are excited to offer the option to present virtually.
The goal of the Robert Macmillan GRiES is to showcase and support education-related projects, conceptual research, and studies in progress at all levels from beginning masters students through to final doctoral presentations. Studies that are well underway, or those which have been completed since last year’s Symposium are also welcome. Students planning poster presentations for the Great Hall or SOGS research days at Western are welcome to present the same material at GRiES. Graduate students presenting at the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE) Annual Conference 2017 in Toronto, or at any other conferences, might find presenting at the Symposium a great place to practice their presentations to an interested audience and receive timely feedback.
