ESP Workshop Series

The Educational Scholarship Program (ESP) is excited to present a new series of educational research skills development seminars during the UF 2017-2018 academic year.  This seminar series is intended to provide knowledge necessary to understand the purposes and processes of education research, and to help UF faculty to become informed consumers of the education research literature and to be effective collaborators in education research. Seminars alone cannot produce independent education researchers, but it is our hope that through the collective faculty development opportunities offered via our HSC colleges and the Educational Scholarship Program we will be able to support your education scholarship goals.

Please note: These seminar sessions will be offered online only via Zoom, a platform similar to Skype that features audio, video, screen sharing, and recording functions. Attendees will find registration links and information about joining the online session in the session’s information page. Pre-session assignments are also listed on the information page for each seminar. In order to receive credit for attending, you will be required to complete a brief evaluation.
