Watson Research Group Meetings

The Watson Research Group would like to invite you to take part in our monthly WCE research group meetings! We want to encourage you that we provide a support group for educational research in any area at any stage. For example, we have helped each other improve study designs and instruments, look at data, work on paper drafts for submission, and work through revisions for resubmission. We have also put together conference proposals and shared information about journal issues and so forth. It's an hour well spent.

  • Wednesday, December 3, 12:30-1:30, EB 385

Please consider joining us to (1) find resources and support with your research agenda and (2) offer the same to colleagues here in Watson.
