The Educate2Act Conference is open to all undergraduates at Northern Arizona University. Join us as we engage in critical dialogue about current demands in public education and how future teachers can enact positive change.
Educate2Act is an undergraduate research conference hosted every spring by the College of Education to provide undergrads with an opportunity to develop their interest and voice in research and creative inquiry. Many students consider submitting their work to the Undergraduate Symposium after having a chance to present to their peers and faculty mentors in the College of Education.
Teacher candidates are encouraged to develop existing assignments into a presentation. Faculty can encourage teacher candidates by talking through how assignments can be made relevant for the conference, mentoring their students in research and presentation skills, and offering extra credit to participate in the event – both as presenters and attendees. We also welcome new student and faculty steering committee members; if you are interested or have students who may be interested, please encourage them to reach out. If you have questions, would like to participate, or have students who you think would be a good fit for this leadership opportunity, please reach out to Gerald.Wood@nau.edu.
This year’s theme is “Together We Stand: Mental Health and Healing”
Theme Description: This theme centers the concerns and worries of many of our teacher candidates, students, and individuals/families/ communities living through the pandemic and emphasizes both teacher candidates’ mental health as well as mental health in the context of P-20 education.
