School of Education Student Scholarship Exhibition

Posters with the gold star “SJ” icon, a Social Justice designation, indicate scholarship that promotes one of the following areas: Awareness, Advocacy, Activism.

Experiential Education/Clinical Practice Reflections

This includes critical reflection of fieldwork experiences through internship opportunities and clinical practice placements. Posters include reflection on the site, clients/students, assignments/role, as well as what the presenter learned through the experience and a reflection on how they impacted their site.

Directions: Please click or tap each display to fully download each poster presentation so you can view and hear the entire presentation.

Completed Research or Research in Progress

This includes scholarly research that is either in the data collection process without final results or research that has been completed. This can include scholarship conducted for honors theses, class projects that utilize the research process, faculty/student research collaborations, and independent research.

Virtual Scholarship Exhibition FAQ

The SOE Scholarship Exhibition is a virtual poster session hosted by the School of Education. The purpose of this event is threefold:

  1. Highlight student scholarly endeavors within our school and celebrate research that is completed or underway
  2. Create an opportunity for School of Education students at all levels to think about research and how it improves our respective fields
  3. Recognize and appreciate the work of student peers


This will be a multi-day event beginning on Monday December 6, with the poster presentations on the Monmouth University website. Throughout the week, everyone will be encouraged to view the posters and vote for the best presentation in each category.

Finally, on Thursday, December 9 at 6 p.m. there will be a closing ceremony on Zoom. During the event on December 9 there will be a virtual live research panel presentation, and then awards will be given for the exemplary poster presentations.

As the definition of scholarship varies widely from discipline to discipline, we have opened up the poster session to include four areas:

  1. Proposed Research
    This includes research that has not entered data collection, however uses the research process for problem identification, research question formation, and a plan for conducting research. This area would fit well for introductory research methods classes or students in the planning phase of honors theses. Posters would walk through this planning phase of research and likely include background, purpose and methods sections, though no specific format is required.
  2. Completed Research or Research In Progress
    This includes scholarly research that is either in the data collection process without final results or research that has been completed. This can include scholarship conducted for honors theses, class projects that utilize the research process, faculty/student research collaborations, and independent research.
  3. Experiential Education and Clinical Practice Reflections
    This includes critical reflection of fieldwork experiences through internship opportunities and clinical practice placements. Posters will include reflection on the site, clients/students, assignments/role, as well as what the presenter learned through the experience and a reflection on how they impacted their site. This could work well for social work placements, clinical experiences in education, counseling, and speech language pathology, health studies professional seminar internships, and nursing clinical placements.
  4. Creative Practice
    This category is designed to highlight other scholarship that is taking place in the classroom that involves thoughtful inquiry or analysis according to the standards of your field. This category may include development of a lesson plan based on current pedagogy, an in-depth analysis of a policy or problem in the field, or a service learning experience that transformed understanding of the field. This category might also include timely and creative practices that were developed in the face of a virtual/hybrid Covid-19 educational environment. These are just examples, and this category is designed to demonstrate that scholarship in each field is often more broad than a traditional social science research paradigm.

We are excited to announce that we will be continuing to provide a special Social Justice designation for applicable posters. These posters will receive a gold star “SJ” icon. A social justice designation is scholarship that promotes one of the following areas:

  • Awareness
    Includes general concepts of social justice and multiculturalism. Overall, the project focuses on both recognition and reflections related to social justice and practices which impact the highlighted topic.
  • Advocacy
    Incorporates an informed inclusion of social justice and multiculturalism within the project. Additionally, the project includes action which generates small change.
  • Activism
    Includes an intentional, proactive engagement in social justice with the goal of creating change to systems or policies that impact the highlighted topic.
