Present research at one conference per year.
I set a goal of presenting at one conference per year. I believe most faculty set this goal and it seemed applicable to me as well. I have a young family, so traveling to more than one conference pear year is prohibitive. However, I did supervise undergraduate business students during their conference presentations of research written under my supervision. Students who presented at the MNSCU Undergraduate Research Conference, Judith Ramaley Celebration of Scholarship and Posters @ The Capitol are under Contribution to Student Development: Goal 4.
- I presented original research at two conferences;
- an innovative workshop session at one conference;
- I collaborated with undergraduate students on four presentations; and
- I collaborated with colleagues on two original research presentations
for a total of nine conference presentations in four years.
A list of my conference presentations and supporting documentation follows below with attachments and hyperlinks when applicable.
