The College of Education's annual Research Conference is back and better than ever. This year, in addition to a keynote address from Brad Phillips, Millikan-Reeve Professor and head director of the Georgia Clinical and Translational Research Unit, the Office of Research and Graduate Education has added a new component to increase collaboration and spark ideas across the College: the Research Rumble!

This is a chance for our researchers across the College to shine—and show off their groundbreaking work for a cash prize! Inspired by the format of TED Talks (and a dash of "Shark Tank"-style competition), this first-ever Research Rumble invites departments to submit one competitor each, who will then have 5 minutes to "sell their science" to the crowd and judges. Use the time wisely—not only is this a chance to explain cutting-edge ideas, but it's also an opportunity to introduce colleagues across the College to new projects and ideas. And the winner wins a cash prize to be used toward the research!

Research Rumble Rules

One contestant per department with faculty/PI "pitcher" determined by internal process. Each department must determine who from their unit will "pitch" using the internal process of their choice.
Each contestant presents a five-minute pitch with minimal slides expressing the following:

The Problem & Why We Should All Care
Research Proposal Pitch (including funding amount, project details, how the results address the problem)

Awards will be given at $500, $1,000 and $2,000 levels. The deadline to submit the PI name and project title is Friday, March 9.

Submit a presenter

Poster Competition Rules

Each department within the College of Education may submit up to five poster presenters (45 posters total)
Themes: Administration, Policy, and Systems; Health and Wellness; Social, Diversity and Cultural Studies; Language, Literature, and Digital Literacies; Learning and Teaching; Measurement, Assessment, and Evaluation

Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place ($250, $500, and $750). The deadline to submit an abstract is 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 16.
