conference proceedings book

As you may know, Drexel is always searching for new initiatives, novel outreaches and sustainable projects that serve to enhance our professional growth and development opportunities. Once such idea offered by one of our faculty colleagues is to develop a virtual conference book, or proceedings of the conference, that would be comprised of chapters submitted by session presenters that are refereed by a conference publication panel.

The 2018 conference book is a compilation of chapters submitted by conference presenters.  Presenters in this process underwent a rigorous vetting for this publication, and as the conference continues to expand, we look forward to an increasing number of presenter chapters in the future. The 2018 book consists of articles from 8 presentations and includes a introduction by Dr. Frederika Reisman: Professor Emerita, Drexel University School of Education and Director of Drexel/Torrance Center for Creativity and Innovation.
