Second Annual Youth Development Research Update

Tuesday, June 5, 2012
1:00pm - 4:00pm
La Tourelle Inn, Ithaca, NY

Each year, the Youth Development Research Update creates a forum for practitioners and Cornell University researchers to discuss issues relevant to the well-being and development of children and adolescents. Research presentations will be followed by ample time for participant questions. Throughout the event, roundtable discussions will provide practitioners an opportunity to reflect on the presented material. Together we will ask:

• How can practitioners use research findings for interventions or practices that benefit young people within various social settings?

• Which questions emerge from the field that researchers have not explored and need to address?

Day 1 - Tuesday, June 5, 2012, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

• Opening Remarks: Valerie N. Adams (State 4-H Leader, Cornell Cooperative Extension)

 • Research presentation 1: Travis D. Park (Dept. of Horticulture)
Engaging Youth in Disciplinary Literacy: How Can We "Extend" Authentic, Relevant Learning?

 • Research presentation 2: Anthony L. Burrow (Dept. of Human Development)
Purpose as an Asset for Youth Development

 Day 2 - June 6, 2012, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Puberty: Individual Differences and Emotional Development

Bullies and Their Bullying: Who Are They and Can We Stop Them?
