Alumni of the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Advanced Certificate program will share their research with School of Education students during a showcase in the lobby of Hagedorn Hall on Wednesday, November 16, at 7 p.m. The event, sponsored by the Special Education Graduate Association (SEGA), is aimed at inspiring students to get involved with research projects while they are still in school. The projects on display were all completed while the alumni were students.
“It is wonderful to see the students conducting such socially significant research,” said Dr. Mary McDonald, Associate Professor of Specialized Programs in Education and Program Director of Advanced Certificates in Special Education. “We are incredibly proud of their work and their willingness to disseminate their knowledge to current Hofstra students and the greater community.”
Attendees will not only have the opportunity to hear from successful alumni, they will also have a chance to get acquainted with SEGA, an association directed by Dr. McDonald that provides Hofstra special education graduate students an opportunity to come together and learn more about special education. SEGA provides opportunities for its members to participate in and attend activities related to the field of special education, similar to this poster session. It is also an opportunity to develop friendships and build professional networks. SEGA hosts and co-sponsors a variety of activities throughout the year.
Students who are not already a member of SEGA can join at tomorrow’s event, or online.
