Five Northwestern Oklahoma State University graduate students submitted a conference proposal to the Oklahoma Educational Studies Association Conference (OESA) and were chosen to present their work in Stillwater at Oklahoma State University this weekend.

Graduate students Amanda Mason, Erie, (Kan.); Kay Unruh, Haviland, (Kan.); Amanda Plunk, Ponca City; Deidra Johnson, Covington; and 2009 graduate Dale Johnson each wrote the papers as part of Educational Practices, a class taught by Dr. Steven Mackie, assistant professor of education.

Mackie worked with them to combine their efforts and submit a proposal for the conference. They presented their symposia titled “Five Women and a Question: What Does it Mean to be Well Educated?”

Each student had approximately 10 minutes to present a portion of their paper. Following the presentation was a brief question and answer session.

“All the students received some brilliant feedback,” Mackie said. “I am so proud of them.”

The Oklahoma Educational Studies Association (OESA) is an academic organization founded in 2001 to support graduate students and faculty in education studies. Educational Studies derives its character and methods from a number of academic disciplines, and area studies, including history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, religion, political science, economics, psychology, cultural studies, gender studies and educational policy studies.
