Students, faculty present posters at annual Christian Scholars Conference

By |


Students and faculty learned about research at Lipscomb and other Christian universities

In June 2018, the 38th annual Thomas H. Olbricht Christian Scholars Conference, held at Lipscomb, added a new poster session highlighting research conducted by students at various participating universities. The health sciences poster session was convened by COPHS Dean Roger Davis and featured 16 posters from various universities, including faculty and staff from Lipscomb.

"This poster session is intended to highlight individual inquisitiveness, original thoughts and application of new pedagogical approaches and technology," Davis said. "Each poster emphasizes methods which can be applied in the classroom. The session provided inspiration and direction for those who have the desire to enhance their personal growth and development, their academic careers and their ability to stimulate student learning and success."
