More than 35 researchers will gather Tuesday, Nov. 19 for the Annual IFCE Research Showcase 2013, which features a variety of research focused on critical health, well-being, educational issues and more from the College of Education’s Department of Individual, Family and Community Education (IFCE). Hosted by the College of Education, the showcase will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. in Travelstead Hall.

The IFCE Research Showcase 2013 serves two main purposes: to raise the visibility of the research being done in the department; and to foster collaboration with and among departmental researchers. Many of the needs of New Mexico students are addressed through the diversity of the research in the College of Education. The faculty and students of the IFCE Department invite the campus community to learn more about its research.

Researchers have signed up to discuss a variety of research topics including: school breakfast, culturally responsive curriculum, LGBTQ curriculum, fathering, diet and inflammation, group counseling, play and learning, transdisciplinarity, effective feedback, reading strategies, student success skills and naturalistic inquiry.

Other topics include: effects of caffeine student choice, LGBT family dynamics, mothers’ and fathers’ involvement in school, interactive learning assessment, counseling for socially just learning environments, bullying, college student persistence, mindfulness based- stress reduction and successful community centers.

The showcase is also a great opportunity for those interested in timely research findings and for other researchers across campus to find potential research partners.
