Faculty Research Day

Spring Faculty Research Day at Central

In order to celebrate faculty scholarship at UCM, the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Committee annually call for submission of original papers for review and recognition during Faculty Research Day.  Papers are solicited for consideration from the entire campus community. 

Guidelines for Submission of Papers

  • Papers must reflect research in one of following categories and be submitted for that category:

        • Science, Technology, and Mathematics

        • Social Sciences, Communications, and the Humanities

        • Business, Economics, and  Finance

        • Education and Health and Human services

        • Instructional Technology, Community Engaged Scholarship, and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

 This project is limited to scholarly papers, including those in the fine arts and humanities, and no works of art, video or films, portfolios, literary works, reviews, or other exclusively creative works will be considered for inclusion;  the CTL and its various faculty committees value such works and recognize them as scholarly endeavors and continue to explore a separate presentation and recognition event for productions of this nature by Central scholars.

  • All entries must be submitted in electronic format to mewilson@ucmo.edu  no later than the close of working hours, March 4th, 2013.

  • Those submitting papers must select the category for which they are submitting their papers; the selection will be final and no attempt will be made by the CTL or faculty readers to redirect the paper to another more appropriate category.

  • Multi-authored papers must be submitted by a UCM researcher and the UCM faculty member must be the primary author.

  • All papers must be based upon the original research of the faculty author(s).

  • Submissions may include papers submitted to or presented or published in other venues in the twelve months immediately preceding April 16th, 2013, as well as previously unpublished work.

  • Each paper must be accompanied by an abstract numbering no more than 350 words.

  • Neither the Center for Teaching and Learning nor the University of Central Missouri will make any claim to intellectual property rights for submissions receiving awards or electronically published.

  • Papers may not exceed twenty-five typed pages in length; graphs, tables, or references may be added as appendixes.

  • Submissions should follow publication guidelines required by scholarly journals in the presenter’s discipline; however, for consideration, all papers should be double spaced and printed in Times New Roman, 12 point font.

  • All papers must be received in the CTL for faculty panel review no later than the close of working hours March 4th, 2013. 

  • Each paper will be read and evaluated by a team of at least two faculty readers.

  • The author of the highest ranked paper in each category will receive an award of $500; the author of the second ranked paper in each category will receive an award of $250.  In the event of multiple authors, the award money will be evenly divided. 

Awards

The author of the paper selected for public presentation in each category will be honored at a reception on April 16th, 2013, and receive an award of $500.  The author of the second ranked paper in  each category will receive an award of $250.
