Graduate Research Symposium

Robert MacMillan Symposium in Education

Robert Macmillan

The Robert Macmillan Symposium in Education (RMSE) is an annual event that is organized by graduate students at the Faculty of Education. The theme for 2020 is “Empowerment in Education: Creating Possibility and Change”. RMSE will be held on Friday, March 27th, 2020.

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 songs, dances, or other forms of art. Unable to attend the Symposium in person? As with the previous four years, we are excited to offer the option to present virtually.

The goal of the RMSE is to showcase and support education-related projects, conceptual research, and studies in progress at all levels from beginning master’s essays 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 RMSE. Graduate students presenting at the American Educational Research Association (AERA), Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE), Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) or other annual meetings and conferences might find presenting at the Symposium a great place to practice their presentations to an interested audience and receive timely feedback.
