Meeting Title: 
Thompson Symposium for Master's Degree Students: Research in Practice
Penn State University, University Park, PA
Date(s) of Meeting:
April 29, 2017
The Thompson Symposium provides a forum for master’s degree students and other scholars to share completed and in-progress research with graduate students and faculty. The Symposium is named in honor of Dr. Keith Thompson who retired from Penn State in May, 2003 after an illustrious career on the music education faculty.

The symposium will feature a keynote presentation by Dr. Alice Hammel, a music educator and leader in field of special needs and music, followed by small- and large-group discussion; a poster session for research in-progress as well as research by faculty, doctoral students, undergraduate students, and current teachers; and small-group question and answer sessions for in-depth discussion on completed master’s project. A $30 fee is required of participants (this includes continental breakfast and lunch, provided).
Types of Submissions Sought:
Master's work OR any work:

Students who are currently enrolled in a master’s degree program or have completed a master’s degree within the last three years are invited to submit projects from their master’s work that reflect systematic inquiry about a topic in music education.

Any work:
Any persons (undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degree students, faculty, teachers) who have completed research or research in-progress related to music education are invited to submit an abstract to be reviewed for the poster session.  
Topics Sought:
