Special Education professors awarded REP grants
Dr. Ambra Green and Dr. John Romig were both awarded Research Enhancement Program grants in the amount of $10,000 each by UTA’s Office of Research Administration. Both awards were funded through August 2020.
Dr. Green received the award for her proposed research, “Evaluation of Visual Performance Feedback and Self-Evaluation to Promote Effective and Equitable Teacher Classroom Management Practices”. Dr. Romig’s research will examine “Improving Writing Instruction for Students with Disabilities through Date-Based Decision-Making”.
REP grants are given by the university specifically for the support of research and professional creative activity. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals presenting viable prospects for continuation through outside funding after an initial support period by REP. As a condition of acceptance of an REP award, the recipient is required to submit a grant proposal to an external funding agency within one year after the REP funding period ends.
"These awards recognize the high quality and impactful work in which both Drs. Green and Romig are engaged," noted Teresa Taber Doughty, dean of UTA's College of Education. "Both are exceptional faculty who conduct important research that inform classroom practices for students with disabilities. I look forward to reading their findings that result from these REP grants."
Dr. Green and Dr. Romig are both Assistant professors in the College of Education’s new Special Education program. They will be recognized as REP grant recipients at the Faculty Awards Ceremony during the meeting of the Faculty and Associates on April 23, 2019, at 4:00 p.m. in the Rio Grande Ballroom of the University Center.
