BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida Atlantic University is gearing up for an event focusing on high school students — how and what they’re learning — next week. It’s worth checking out if this is one of your areas of interest. Here’s the announcement from FAU, and the key is that it’s completely free and open to the public.
“Florida Atlantic University’s College of Education’s Student Achievement Council will host the 11th annual Student Research Symposium on Tuesday, November 29, from 4 to 8 p.m., at the FAU High School, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus.  “The Changing Face of Research” symposium will showcase the amount and variety of research being conducted in the field of education, as well as give students the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback.
“The rapid development of education research as an important part of academia demands stakeholders to disseminate their research findings for the benefit of society,” said Valerie Bristor, Ph.D., dean of FAU’s College of Education.  “Since 2002, the College of Education’s undergraduate and graduate students have used this Symposium as an opportunity to showcase their research accomplishments, and I am pleased that this valuable tradition continues.”
“The Changing Face of Research” symposium will focus on how researchers, research subjects and methodologies are evolving as a result of technology, diversity, multiculturalism, and a desire to understand understudied and marginalized populations. It will feature work from the College’s students who have designed research proposals, are in the process of conducting research, as well as have completed research studies.
Presentations will include topics such as involuntary placement of students in advanced placement courses, the impact of learning team meetings on teacher practice, the effect of technology on student motivation, achievement among English Language Learners, and post-secondary academic success among student with autism spectrum disorder.”
