Symposium Presentation

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

My colleague D and I presented at the University of Phoenix Northern Virginia Campus’ Symposium, “Conducting Scholarship in the Workplace/Classroom: Myths, Realities, and Rewards” on Saturday. It was a great experience! We presented some of our work related to a workshop on small business/microbusiness. The Symposium was held in Reston, VA, which is about a two hour drive for us. We enjoyed an inspiring presentation by Dr. Jeremy Moreland, executive dean, regarding faculty scholarship. After the presentation, there were 12 research presentations (ours was one).

This was our first presentation, and we really gained from stepping out from our comfort zone. It was a little nerve wracking not knowing how things would go together (how many people? will they ask questions? will our presentation be appropriate for this audience?). It was a long day but I an sooo glad that we did it. I hope this was one of many such opportunities. D and I enjoy some great collaboration work sessions, and I think they paid off!
