2018 Emerging Rural Scholars Summit

Join us for the 2018 Emerging Rural Scholars Summit to be held July 31, 2018. This event is for graduate students and early career researchers with an interest in rural education and will be held in conjunction with the International Symposium for Innovation in Rural Education (ISFIRE). 

The Summit is an exciting opportunity for emerging rural scholars (graduate students, post-doctoral students, and early career researchers) to meet other rural education research scholars from around the world, present your work, and get critical feedback and advice from experts in the field.

Highlights include:

  • A Keynote Address about the challenges and opportunities in rural education research.
  • Lightning Talks on each participants’ research, with feedback from experts
  • A variety of small group discussions on topics such as research ethics, communication and dissemination of findings, career trajectories, etc.
