Information for Student Presenters
Student Research Symposium registration closed on February 22; all students must have registered before the deadline to participate in the symposium. To allow for a smooth virtual event, students must pre-submit their presentations, including the final poster or oral presentation video and all other materials, by April 12 at 8 a.m. MST. We will work with students, mentors, and the online platform organizers to ensure that all intellectual property and privacy concerns are addressed for your presentation materials.
Administrators, faculty, staff and students are invited to participate by digitally attending the poster and oral presentation sessions. In addition to discovering the incredible work USU students engage in every day, audience members enrich the experience by interacting with the presenters, helping them further develop their ability to convey the importance of their work.
The 2021 Student Research Symposium will be available in a view-only mode by the full public. To actively participate and interact with our presenters you’ll first need to create a Symposium account. Then, when the SRS page opens on the day of the event, you’ll be able to view and comment on all of the student presentations. All research projects will be viewable under the “Presentations” tab on the SRS site on Symposium, and poster presenters will be responding to questions through the comments feature on their respective presentations. Additionally, oral sessions can be joined via Zoom under the “Live Sessions” tab at their designated times.
The SRS page won’t be live until the event begins, but you can see an example of what the event will look like through the Symposium demo page.
Evaluating at the Student Research Symposium
Each year, doctoral students and faculty provide constructive evaluations of every project at SRS. Students can review the rubric in advance of the event and use it as a guide to structure a strong research or creative presentation. Evaluators will have the opportunity to chat with students through live Zoom sessions or via Symposium’s comment feature, and students are encouraged to check their presentations frequently to answer questions and illustrate mastery of their materials. Afterwards, students will receive an assessment of their presentation within each rubric category as well as written feedback on their work.
Any PhD student or faculty can volunteer to serve as an evaluator here by Wednesday, March 31. Volunteers can specify availability and capacity, and the entire process will take place online. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about evaluating at the Student Research Symposium!
