Curriculum Leadership doctoral student wins award at national conference

January 16, 2019

Sherry Bochenek, a doctoral student in Curriculum Leadership, won the TED Kaleidoscope Student Research Poster Award for Literature Review at the recent national conference.

Kaleidoscope is the Teacher Education Division (TED) of Council for Exceptional Children’s Graduate Student Committee.

Each year, Kaleidoscope holds two separate graduate student symposia as an opportunity for doctoral students to present their research professionally and to receive constructive feedback from faculty reviewers.

Students can present posters in one of the following categories depending on their research: Single Case, Qualitative, Quantitative, Mixed Method, or Literature Review. Posters are reviewed and scored by university faculty members; posters with the highest scores in each category are presented with awards.

Lydia Gerzel-Short, visiting assistant professor in the NIU Department of Special and Early Education, served as a mentor to Bochenek in submitting her proposal to and poster for the TED conference.
