Several HDFS faculty members and graduate students presented their research projects and teaching ideas before various audiences during the first half of the Fall 2013 semester:
- Dr. Jacki Fitzpatrick, a TTU Teaching Academy member, shared some of her innovative instructional techniques at the university’s annual Faculty Academic Contributions Exhibit (FACE) and at the annual Engagement Scholarship conference, a national meeting that Texas Tech hosted this year.
- Dr. Sylvia Niehuis presented a paper (co-authored with TTU colleague Dr. Alan Reifman and Florida State’s Dr. Christine “Coco” Readdick) at the German Pairfam (Panel Analysis of Intimate Relationships and Family Dynamics) conference in Munich. The Pairfam is a large, longitudinal data set that is available for scholars worldwide to conduct analyses. The PowerPoint slideshow from the talk (in PDF form) is available through the conference program.
- Two HDFS doctoral students were scholarship winners at the Texas Tech Graduate School’s annual Arts and Humanities Graduate Student Research Conference: Timothy Oblad ($125) and Rachel Engler ($100).
