Kelly Coffyn of Bainbridge Island presented original research April 25 at Ohio Wesleyan University’s 2019 Student Symposium.
Coffyn presented a poster on “A Comparison of Early Childhood Education in Powell/Dublin, Ohio: Pedagogical and Literacy Practices.”
“Modeling an academic conference, the symposium allows students to showcase research and work created inside the classroom, through independent projects, or during other OWU Connection experiences,” said Ellen Arnold, director of this year’s symposium and associate professor of history.
“The Student Symposium,” Arnold said, “is a chance for Ohio Wesleyan students to share the fruits of their liberal arts education and enter dialogues that can spur ideas for new projects.”
Founded in 1842, Ohio Wesleyan University is one of the nation’s premier liberal arts universities. Ohio Wesleyan is featured in the book “Colleges That Change Lives” and included in the U.S. News & World Report and Princeton Review “best colleges” lists.
