USF College of Education 2015 Inquiry Conference

USF College of Education Inquiry Conference highlights innovative research in education

The USF College of Education Inquiry Conference is back for its third year on Monday, April 27, 2015 from noon-6:00 p.m. The conference is a forum for educators to share and discuss their systematic and intentional study of their teaching. Each year hundreds of educators gather to share research into teaching and learning and practical methods of applying data to reform, refine and improve the practice of teaching. Last year almost two-hundred presenters shared their findings through poster sessions, roundtable discussions and research presentations. Presentations include inquiry work of undergraduate students, graduate students, USF faculty, school faculty, principals and teachers across programs. This year's keynote speaker will be Dr. Darby Delane, a 7th Grade Civics Teacher at Kanapaha Middle School in Gainesville. The topic of Delane's speech will be Follow the Drinking Gourd: The Emancipatory Power of Inquiry.

The intent of the conference is to create synergy related to engaging in inquiry across programs and partnerships. The conference showcases inquiry work that uses data to help shape classroom practices by identifying challenges, researching issues, collecting and analyzing data, making changes based on findings and sharing those findings with others. Be a part of the future of education in the Tampa Bay area as educators, students and faculty share and discuss research into teaching and learning. The conference is being held at the Museum of Science and Industry in the MOSI Partnership School at 4801 E. Fowler Ave in Tampa.

The Inquiry Conference is sponsored by the David C. Anchin Center, USF College of education, MOSI, Research One, USF Office of Undergraduate Research, Hillsborough County Schools and Pasco County Schools.
