WTAMU Spring ELS Class to Feature Student Research Projects


CANYON, Texas—Education on Demand at West Texas A&M University is adding a little twist to its Eternal Learning Series (ELS) this spring with a one-day event featuring student research.

ELS is designed for adult learners interested in challenging, innovative topics with stimulating and spirited discussions. The spring class will feature some of the projects entered in the University’s annual Student Research Conference, giving ELS participants an opportunity to interact with WTAMU students and learn from their presentations. The one-day class will be offered as two different options—a half day or a full day—on Wednesday, March 29 at the Amarillo Center. 

The half-day option includes a luncheon and either two morning or two afternoon sessions. Participants will have a list of four presenters to choose from for two different sessions. Registration is $50 per person.

The full-day option includes the luncheon and both the morning and afternoon sessions. Participants will choose two presenters for two morning sessions—9:15-10:15 a.m. and 10:30-11:30 a.m.—and two presenters for two afternoon sessions—1-2 p.m. and 2:15-3:15 p.m. Registration is $80 per person.

Session topics range from “More than Goodnight: A Venture into the Life’s Work of J. Evetts Haley” to “Examining the Popularity of Consumer-Generated Toy Videos on You Tube.”

The luncheon will feature a State-of-the-University address by Dr. Walter Wendler, University president. Space is limited, and early registration is encouraged.
