Save the Date for EHDx Talks

Bass Connections Team

The Education and Human Development Bass Connections theme invites you to save the date for EHDx Talks on April 13, 2016.

Students from each EHD Bass Connections team will present a five minute talk on his or her team’s work. The event will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Nasher Museum of Art.

A reception and poster session, also at the Nasher, will immediately follow the talks with a reception starting at 7 p.m. All are welcome, including students, staff, faculty and other guests.

The culminating event celebrates the achievement of students who have been working on interdisciplinary research teams within the EHD Bass Connections theme and provides an opportunity for students to discuss the research projects and their work.

“We heard from students that they wanted more opportunities to present their work and that they were looking for some type of culminating event that would recognize and highlight their achievements throughout the year,” said EHD Theme Administrator Cecily Hardaway.

“We were happy to create this opportunity, so that students have a sense of accomplishment and can share their work with other Bass teams and the Duke community more broadly.”

EHD Bass studentsThe first in what will hopefully become an annual event, the EHDx Talks are an opportunity for students to present their own work while also networking with peers and learning more about the other research projects hosted by EHD Bass Connections.

“We hope that students and faculty across teams will connect and help to foster and enhance the EHD Bass Connections community,” said Hardaway.

Students interested in Bass Connections are especially encouraged to attend as they will have the opportunity to learn about ongoing research, see how teams interact with one another on projects, and discover how different academic disciplines contribute to the EHD Bass Connections experience.

As Hardaway explained, “Duke students will have a chance to see what Bass Connections in Human Development and Education is all about and get a better understanding of the types of opportunities that are available. We hope that students, who are not already on EHD Bass teams, will be encouraged to apply in the future.”
