In an age where students graduate college into an increasingly competitive market, it is crucial for their job or graduate school application to stand out amongst the competition. One great experience that many undergraduate-level students don’t even consider is presenting individual or collaborative research at scholarly conferences.

In this presentation, Northwest Nazarene University’s Professor David Chaplin will discuss how professors can incentivize their students to present research at scholarly conferences in either live or virtual formats. Issues of financial constraints, research, and writing support will all be discussed. Share your own experiences with student research and ask Professor Chaplin questions in a live Q&A after his presentation!

Professor David Chaplin is a professor of economics at Northwest Nazarene University with over 25 years of teaching experience. He is the author of many scholarly articles in the realms of sports economics, economics education, and academic administration in higher education.
