Student Research

Meet some of our doctoral students and learn about their professional and research interests.

Institutional Review Board

Student research must be reviewed if the student is collecting data (e.g., tasks, interviews, videotaping, tests, observations, etc.) from human participants, or if they are administering a treatment of any kind to human participants.

Work closely with your faculty advisor to write, review, and edit the IRB protocol. Your faculty advisor should submit the IRB protocol, as one document, to the College of Education IRB Chair: Dr. Lindy Crawford.

Students and advisors will receive feedback from the College IRB Committee within approximately two weeks of the submission date.

POSTPONED: Three Minute Thesis

In an abundance of caution, this event has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

What is 3MT®?

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland, which challenges research graduate students to present a compelling oration on their thesis/dissertation topic and its significance in just three minutes while using language appropriate for a “non-specialist” audience.

Why participate?

3MT® will help students prepare an “elevator pitch” for their research, which is useful at professional conferences, presenting at the College of Education Research and Pedagogy Festival, in job interviews, etc.

VIRTUAL EVENT: Research & Pedagogy Festival

2020 Research & Pedagogy Festival

Join us for a virtual poster session featuring undergraduate, master’s and doctoral student research.

We are moving the deadline to submit festival posters to April 5th.

Submit Your Poster

Please still follow submission requirements of having a faculty mentor review your poster for content and style, prior to submitting your poster in MS PowerPoint format.  You do not have to submit a faculty mentor signed checklist, although it is still highly recommended that you use this checklist as a guide to communicating (via email) with your mentor, regarding the review of your poster submission.

Please use the same submission process (via link below, also found on the COE Student Research webpage) to submit your poster. On the COE student research webpage, you can also find the faculty mentor checklist, poster templates, winning poster examples from previous festivals, etc.

All submitted, reviewed, and accepted posters will form part of one overall presentation of festival posters that will be made available to the public and judges during the week of April 13-17.

We will announce the winners of this year’s COE Research & Pedagogy Festival during the week of April 20-24.

*We understand that the closure of local schools will limit what data some festival participants will be able to gather, analyze, and present.  We ask that you produce posters with the data that you currently have and make the judges aware of these challenges/limitations on your poster.

We hope that the extra week to submit your posters gives you the necessary time to complete quality posters and we are pleased that we will still be able to share the wonderful research that we conduct here at the TCU College of Education.
