PDS provides many scholarly opportunities for all stakeholders to study effective teaching and learning. The SUNY Buffalo State PDS encourages collaborative scholarship through Action Research Minigrants and Co-teaching Minigrants. PDS teams present their work at the PDS Conference each year. PDS faculty, graduate assistants, student representatives, and student ambassadors also present at the annual meeting of the National Association for Professional Development Schools.
If you plan to do research that involves humans, you must obtain approval from the SUNY Buffalo State Institutional Review Board (IRB). The first step is to complete the CITI training. Please see the Collaborative IRB Training Initiative (CITI) document. Next, you must complete a proposal using the templates provided by the Sponsored Programs Office at SUNY Buffalo State. You can find more information under the Research Compliance tab.
Creating a poster is an easy way to depict your research. Be sure to create your poster, obtain feedback from a mentor, and order it to be printed well in advance of when you will present.
You can obtain funding to conduct research and to travel to conferences and present your research.
