Showcasing Our Integrated Learning Experience
Inquire . . . Discover. . . Imagine . . . Explore . . . Create
As the hallmark and theme of every Research Day, these five words -- inquire, discover, imagine, explore and create -- best represent Spelman's commitment to inquiry-based, student-centered, integrated learning.
Research Day 2016 at Spelman College was a Great Success
Last year, over 250 abstracts were submitted and approved. The presentations represented 25 academic disciplines as well as each academic division on campus. Such a range of disciplinary perspectives indicates our belief in the benefits of a liberal arts education.
As an institution, we have been intentional in implementing pedagogical approaches that promote undergraduate research including, but not limited to, student-centered learning, as well as deliberately-structured approaches to specific learning outcomes. Our students are making strides and exploring cutting-edge innovations in robotics, digital and information technology, data mining, as well as laboratory and field research.
As the ambit expands, students’ research interests are no longer constricted by clearly-delineated disciplinary boundaries. Our students truly understand the role that global education and interdisciplinarity plays in the generation of new knowledge.
Research Day also practices the Sustainable Spelman
model by incorporating a digital program guide to disseminate information about the event.
