2012 Teaching and Learning Fair
Be a presenter in the Undergraduate Research Showcase
The purpose of your student presentation is to celebrate your research and scholarly accomplishments and allow you to share the results of your project with others. Regardless of your discipline or area of study, you are invited to present your research project or creative activity with a poster or an exhibit.
You will need to provide your poster materials. The poster content is usually a mixture of a brief narrative paper intermixed with tables, graphs, pictures, etc. The presentation should intellectually communicate your research and help synthesize your main ideas and research direction. You can design a hanging poster or a tri-fold table display poster.
What you will do at the Fair with your poster display
You will have to clarify your own thinking in preparing a visual presentation of your work for an audience of non-specialists. In addition, the discussion that can develop with the audience, as well as with other participants, can be challenging and stimulating.
The poster presentation should briefly define your problem, question, or specific topic addressed by the research or scholarship, or the purpose of your creative project; it should indicate the methods and/or approach you took in the inquiry; and it should summarize your results or conclusions.
During the poster sessions, you will be assigned a specific display location. We are anticipating forty to fifty posters that will be displayed during the Fair. You will stand by your display, available to discuss your research, scholarly or creative projects with the audiences who approach the poster.
