"Giving voice to an invisible population " in the MECA conference

Thanks to CTL's Administrative Analyst ,Dr. Scott, Kathy Lynn for helping to create this professional brochure for MECA conference


In the MECA conference my research under the name  Giving a voice to an invisible population” was placed in “ Special guest speaker” on Sunday 8/20/2017. The conference

The audience were educators, administrators, Professional development seekers, researchers and university professors and lecturers.

I took a brochure made by CTL (Center for Teaching and Learning),CSUN and my card, a table designated to our school because of my participation in which I took all the brochures and advertisement from CSUN’s Michael D. Eisner college of Education with me. My poster was displayed at all time during the conference.

The reactions ranged from praising me for the range of the research to the tips for the educators. Some took note, some asked for more info and some wanted to be in contact.
