Celebrating Student Achievement
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
This is an individual scholarly paper lasting no more than 15 minutes. Once accepted, the presentation is scheduled for a session with papers of similar or complementary subject matter. Presenters may use visuals (brought on a CD or other memory device for use on a laptop that has been installed in the room) or distribute handouts.
Occasionally two students will share a 15-minute time slot. In such cases they should submit separate submission forms with the same presentation title and attach a single, shared abstract.
Students working in groups on a research topic may propose a session that includes three or four individual oral presentations. Each student should submit a separate abstract and submission form, and all of the forms should be stapled together. We will do our best to accommodate these requests.
Panel Discussion and Pecha Kucha Presentations
These formats allow groups of students to present sets of thematically related papers. A panel discussion is a 30 to 40 minute session in which a several students talk briefly for 5-7 minutes (each) on a single topic and then take questions or lead a discussion with the attendees. A Pecha Kucha is a faster-paced version of the panel discussion with a group of related 20 second x 20 image presentations followed by a question and answer period. To see a more detailed explanation of the Pecha Kucha format, go to www.pechakucha.org.
The general poster session is held in conjunction with breakfast. Students or groups of students create a poster that demonstrates their research and then discuss their work with visitors.
Some groups or departments often host special presentations, awards, or exhibits. These should be coordinated with the director of Undergraduate Research and the advisory board for Celebrating Student Achievement. To schedule an event please submit the Event Request Form, providing as much detail as possible.
