Student Presenters

Sharing your work can help you expand your network of contacts who share your research interests. For undergraduate researchers who intend to complete a graduate degree, presenting can be an invaluable experience. We recommend discussing your interest in sharing your research with your faculty advisor. They can help match your interests with the appropriate venue.

Poster Presentations
Most poster presentation events follow similar guidelines, so much of this advice will be relevant to professional conferences, in addition to all USU Office of Research events including the Fall and Spring Student Research Symposia. If you intend to reuse your poster at future events, check their guidelines for any  unique expectations or requirements.

Oral Presentations
An oral presentation is usually more than just reading a paper or set of slides to an audience (though in some disciplines, this is the expectation). How you deliver your presentation is as important in  communicating your message as what you say. Use these guidelines to learn simple tools that help you prepare and present an effective presentation, and design PowerPoint slides that support and enhance your talk.
