Psychology Students Presenting at Capitol Graduate Research Summit


Congratulations to Jo Jardina, David Libby, and Dustin Smith for being three of the nine selected students to present at this year's 10th Annual Capitol Graduate Research Summit (CGRS). The Capitol Research Summit in Topeka is an annual event organized through collaborative efforts between three state universities – The University of Kansas, Wichita State University, Kansas State University, and the University of Kansas Medical Center. The main purpose of the summit is to provide an opportunity for selected graduate students to expose the State government and education officials, as well as the general public, to the quality of graduate research performed in the State of Kansas.

Jo will be presenting her research "Are E-Textbooks the Educational Tools of the Future?", David is presenting his study "Distracted While Driving: A Comparison of the Effects of Texting and Talking on a Cell Phone", and Dustin will be presenting his work on "Combat Identification Training Using an Augmented Reality Learning System".

Samantha Jansen is also one of two WSU CGRS Student Representatives representing the university and assisting to coordinate the event. Samantha is working under the direction of Graduate School Dean Abu Masud and Dr. Bayram Yildirim.
