Two CEITR research teams present in Missouri

March 5, 2019-Two CEITR teams will present at the TLT 2019:Teaching and Learning Technology Conference at the Missouri University of Science & Technology on March 14, 2019.  The theme of the 2019 conference is Assessments. The teams were formed through the ResearchHUB under the leadership of Dr. Mansureh Kebritchi; one team has been presenting and publishing together since 2016 and the other is a brand new team that came together in October, 2018.

Dr. Michelle Susberry Hill is the team leader for one of the Diversity Teams in the CEITR Hub.  The title of their presentation is Its not Beethoven anymore:  Opening new territories for assessments by integrating music.  The team members presenting with Dr. Hill will be Dr. Jennifer Calito and Dr. Shanel Harris.  The contributing members are:  Dr. Jennifer Calito, Dr.Fortune Taylor, Dr. Shanel Harris, Dr. Jacques Alexander, Dr. Shaquanah Robinson, and Dr. Michelle Susberry Hill.

While submitting her current team’s proposal, Dr. Hill brought the call for proposals to her long-term team of researchers (they call themselves the Dream Team!), who also decided to submit for another presentation and were accepted.  Team members, Dr. Karen Johnson, Dr. Medgar Roberts, Dr. Mary “Mimi” Stout, Dr. Michelle Susberry Hill, and Dr. Lisa Wells will present “Cell Phones for Assessment: Not a Classroom Distraction.” In this presentation, the team will share their experiences of student use of a cell phones in the classroom, the recent literature on the topic, and demonstrations of cell phone applications that can be used for formative assessments.

Since 2017, the Dream Team members have presented at KWBA (2017 and 2018) and at AECT (2017 and 2018), TQR (2019) and they have published the article What Educational Leaders Should Know about How Doctoral Students Use Social Media in Research and Media (2017-18).  

Upon completion of the TLT 2019 presentations, the slides will be available in the ResearchHUB for both teams.
