You can reserve student spaces in one of two ways:
The University has an expanded definition of scholarship. For examples, you may want to review the Boyer model of scholarship. Presenters will have the option of presenting during a concurrent session, poster session, or via performance, exhibit, or demonstration. Many of you have presented your original research, projects, and creative works off campus. This is an opportunity for you to share them with the campus community.
If you are a student, please contact your faculty mentor, if applicable. All other inquiries can be directed to: McKennan Hansen, Festival Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
Concurrent sessions are oral presentations which are the major means for sharing knowledge and best practices. Many times the presenter has an accompanying PowerPoint presentation. Hand -outs may, or may not, be used. The amount of time dedicated to each presentation will depend on the number of speakers. We have designed the sessions so that the time will be distributed evenly among presenters. The time allotted includes any Q&A time you want to include at the end of your presentation. Typically, there will be two faculty members per session, and student presenters will vary between three and four students. Therefore, faculty members will each be allocated 30 minutes of time while students will have between 20 and 15 minutes. In fairness to the other presenter(s), please time your talk and limit your presentation to the time allotted; moderators will ensure that all presenters receive their allocated time.
Poster sessions provide a venue for anyone who wants to share information using a poster. All posters will be displayed in the Starlight Room for the entire day. Each poster presenter will be given a half-hour presentation slot where they are expected to stand with their poster. During this allocated time, please be prepared to discuss your methods and findings with interested colleagues and visitors as well as answer questions. Once your allocated time has passed, only your poster needs to remain in place until the end of the day. This will maximize the amount of time that your work is available for viewing. You may, or may not, have accompanying handouts.
Please note, in order for a student poster to be displayed it must conform to the Festival’s specifications. The only poster size that will be displayed is 30” x 40”.
The committee will pay for the poster printing and will contact you with information regarding where to get your poster printed. In addition, there will be workshops designed to help students create posters which meet professional standards. Posters not conforming to the Festival’s specifications will not be displayed.
Presenters must be available to discuss their poster during their assigned session.
Please note, all posters must be 30"x40" using either a landscape or portrait orientation. SUU is providing funding for posters that adhere to these guidelines. If guidelines are not met, presenter must pay all changes.
All posters must be:

In an effort to accommodate the variety of media used to display creative projects, this category is divided into two sections: display and performance.
