ELPS graduate students host annual Research Day

Educational Leadership and Policy Studies (ELPS) graduate students held their 7th Annual Research Day on Saturday March 23rd. The student-organized event allows students in the ELPS program to showcase their research interest in a variety of formats. Research Day participants benefit from the opportunity to receive feedback from their peers and faculty in preparation for their current classes, dissertation defenses, or upcoming conferences.

Each year, topics are varied. This year's included Justin T. Dellinger's research on the use and implementation of learning analytics and its potential for benefiting organizations like UTA. Courtney Matthew's research on African American female teachers who work in rural settings provided another example of the important and impactful work being conducted by graduate students in the ELPS program.

Research Day continues the tradition of excellence in the ELPS department and faculty feedback for the students' work proves to be invaluable to each participant.
