Class Credit for Attending Fall Poster Session
The Center for Undergraduate Research would like to encourage students to attend the Fall Poster Session and hear about the great research that their peers are conducting. We'd like to assist instructors who offer class credit for attending the Fall Poster Session by providing documentation of student attendance to instructors.
How it works:
Students are invited to attend the Fall Poster Session on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 between 4:00-6:00 pm in the Ballroom of the Kansas Union in order to get extra credit. When students arrive, they will be given a packet that includes presentation feedback forms. Students will fill out a form for four different poster presentations. At the end of the event, students will turn in their packets at the front desk. In the week following the Fall Poster Session, the Center will email the instructor the names of students who turned in these packets.
Instructors: if you are planning on offering this extra credit to your students, please send us a quick email by November 25, 2019 to let us know the name of the class and the number of students enrolled so we can get your class information printed on our attendance sheets.
Students: If you will be attending the Fall Poster Session for extra credit, please
- Before the event, review the Fall Poster Session schedule of presenters online and decide which four presentations you would like to go see. The program will be posted a week or two before the event.
- Students can come anytime between 4:00 and 6:00; you do not necessaily need to stay the entire time, just long enough to give yourself time to talk with four different student presenters. It will take you at least 30 minutes to see four poster presentations, so be sure to get there in time so you do not have to rush their presentations.
- Bring a photo ID with you--we'll check your ID when you hand in your extra credit packet.
- Hand in your extra credit packet at the information table at the front of the presentation room. We will forward your name to the instructor of your class the week following the event.
Just stop by the information table at any point during the Poster Session if you have questions!
