Faculty-Student Research Project

Engaged classroom teachers explore questions that arise from their interactions with children.  Education faculty members offer essential demonstrations of teachers researching key issues through faculty-student research projects.  Each year Early Childhood Education and Special Education preservice teachers are invited by faculty members to join various on-going or new faculty collaborative research projects.
