You can reserve student spaces in one of two ways:
The University has an expanded definition of scholarship. For examples, you may want to review the Boyer model of scholarship. Presenters will have the option of presenting during a concurrent session, poster session, or via performance, exhibit, or demonstration. Many of you have presented your original research, projects, and creative works off campus. This is an opportunity for you to share them with the campus community.
If you are a student, please contact your faculty mentor, if applicable. All other inquiries can be directed to: McKennan Hansen, Festival Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
Concurrent sessions are oral presentations which are the major means for sharing knowledge and best practices. Many times the presenter has an accompanying PowerPoint presentation. Hand -outs may, or may not, be used. The amount of time dedicated to each presentation will depend on the number of speakers. We have designed the sessions so that the time will be distributed evenly among presenters. The time allotted includes any Q&A time you want to include at the end of your presentation. Typically, there will be two faculty members per session, and student presenters will vary between three and four students. Therefore, faculty members will each be allocated 30 minutes of time while students will have between 20 and 15 minutes. In fairness to the other presenter(s), please time your talk and limit your presentation to the time allotted; moderators will ensure that all presenters receive their allocated time.
A poster session is a venue for presenters to share their work using a poster. Examples of poster presentations include small completed research/EDGE projects, research/EDGE projects that are near completion, class projects, etc.
Presenters will stand with their poster during the entire poster session to answer questions and discuss their work with interested colleagues and visitors. The poster will remain in place throughout the day (before and after the poster session) to maximize viewing time. Presenters may have accompanying handouts, but handouts are not required.
SUU’s Festival of Excellence requires posters to be 30” x 40”. Printing costs will be covered by the Festival of Excellence. Printing instructions will be provided to all poster presenters. Faculty mentors are responsible for helping students create posters that meet professional standards. Posters not conforming to the Festival’s specifications will not be displayed.
Posters must include:
In an effort to accommodate the variety of media used to display creative projects, this category is divided into two sections: display and performance.
