Annual event features presentations, lectures and performances illustrating the act of research and the work of Lesley’s faculty, students and alumni
Saturday, April 05, 2014
The events were held in University Hall on Friday, March 28, and the overarching theme for this year’s Community of Scholars Day was “Work in Progress,” which was designed as an opportunity for all of the Lesley community’s artists, teachers, innovators, activists, researchers and citizens to honor scholarship in various stages.
The result was an energizing day filled with sessions that ranged from instructive to insightful to uplifting. Lesley senior Michelle Ballou presented her honors research project, “It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it: A psycholinguistic study,” which encompassed a fascinating analysis of how language informs interpersonal relationships and communications. During a concurrent session, Assistant Professor Kazuyo Kubo and a group of students delved into complex issues facing families and children in the 21st century including social justice, cultural competency and social media.
