Class Credit for Attendance
The Center for Undergraduate Research would like to encourage students to attend the Undergraduate Research Symposium and hear about the great research that their peers are conducting. We'd like to assist instructors who offer class credit for attending the Symposium by providing documentation of student attendance to instructors.
How it works:
Students are invited to attend the two general sessions of the Symposium (tentatively set for 3:00-4:00 and 4:20-5:20) 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 oral or poster presentations. At the end of the day, students will turn in their packets. Students should bring their KU ID card with them so we can swipe their card through a card reader when they turn in their completed packet. In the week following the Symposium, the Center will email the instructor the names of students who turned in a packet.
Instructors: if you are planning on offering this extra credit to your students, please send us a quick email by Friday, April 3, 2020 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 Symposium for extra credit, please follow these instructions:
- Review the Symposium program online before the event and decide which four presentations you would like to go see. The program will be posted a week or two before the event.
- Arrive by 2:45 so you have time to find the presentation room before the General Sessions start at 3:00 pm. Extra credit students are also welcome to attend the opening session of the Symposium, which will take place from 1:30-2:45 in Woodruff Auditorium, but you should fill out your four feedback forms about presentations you see during the general sessions.
- Bring your KU ID with you--we'll check your ID and swipe your KU ID card through a card reader when you hand in your extra credit packet.
- Hand in your extra credit packet at one of the two information tables (5th floor of Kansas Union or an alternate location-TBD). We will forward your name to the instructor of your class the week following the event.
Just stop by the information tables (on the 5th floor of the Kansas Union or at the other info. table - TBD) at any point during the day if you have questions!
