The Walden Conference on Educational Research and Practice (CERAP) is a Student Conference that is being established as an annual event starting in 2018-2019. Held in March each year, the fully online conference provides an opportunity for students who are pursuing doctoral level research to present for the Walden online community. Walden education graduate students and Walden alumni who have conducted their own research are eligible to participate. Two presentation types are available. Research can be presented in either a pre-recorded poster session or in a paper presentation format. Students conducting ongoing research are encouraged to submit poster session proposals. Current Walden students will have a faculty sponsor.

Proposal submissions are being accepted between November 30, 2018 and January 4, 2019.
Authors will be notified of the status of their submission by February 15, 2019.
The DATE of the online conference is March 16, 2019.

Poster sessions are 15 minute pre-recorded sessions that participants view ahead of time, but have access to the author in live sessions on the day of the conference for questions and answers.

Paper sessions are 20 minute live session where authors present their research the day of the conference to participants online and synchronously. The session ends with time for questions and answers.
