You may share anything from course papers, to research projects, to conference presentations, to dissertation work. Students in more advanced stages of their doctoral program are encouraged to submit Paper Presentation proposals. All proposals will be accepted. 

Poster Presentation

Poster presentations allow you to share your research and to receive feedback from peers about your line of research as related to your dissertation work. It also benefits you because it puts all of the elements of your potential research in one place so you can see if your overall concept is coherent and the elements align. Bring 12-16 PowerPoint slides printed on full-page landscape letter-sized paper. The slides should outline your line of research and may include a problem statement, research questions, literature review framework, potential method(s), and findings and implications (if you have engaged in a study).  Materials will be provided to display your printed slides on a poster board.

Paper Presentation

In paper sessions, students present abbreviated versions of their papers, followed by discussion. These sessions are intended for sharing dissertation proposals, dissertation research in-progress, more developed papers, or analysis of policy and practice in an abbreviated form. Presenters will have 10 minutes to share the content of their papers. LCD projectors will be available; bring a copy of your presentation on a USB Thumb drive. Presentations should include information about how to access the full paper electronically; no paper handouts are necessary. Students may work with their doctoral chair or a faculty member to develop the paper for the session.
