New talks are added to this page daily, as they are linked in the plenary page.  Keep checking back!

In the research paper break out session, attendees learn about the results of a qualitative and/or quantitative research study related to the research agendas of the Research Centers, Research Fellowship funded projects, grant-funded projects supported by the Office of Scholarship Support, or campus-based research.  Each research paper breakout sessions provide attendees an opportunity to learn about 2-4 research studies in a similar area, being conducted at UOPX and/or by your UOPX peers.  Join us to hear their methods, learn about new findings, and discuss what this means for the fields, next steps, and practice.

Available technology proven to increase student engagement and achievement is under-utilized in contemporary classrooms. Despite evidence proving the effectiveness of this new technology, Web 2.0 tools in the classroom remain underused.

Crises of Care and Critique: School Leaders and Narratives of Compassion Fatigue
