Research & Service Leadership Symposium

Presentation Formats

Poster Sessions

Presenting a poster entails creating a poster that is 36 inches by 48 or 60 inches and presenting it for 1.5 hours.  When presenting your poster, you will be in a room with many other people presenting posters.  You will pin your poster to a poster board and your job is to stand next to your poster and explain your research/project to people who stop by and are interested in your project.  Presenting at a poster session is much more like having multiple conversations with individuals and much less like public speaking in front of an audience.  The poster sessions at the R&SL symposium are the same format that you find at a professional research conference.

Poster Content for Research Projects

The poster content should include background information, research question, hypothesis, methodology, results, conclusions and implications of your project.

Poster Content for Service Leadership, Community Engagement or Environmental Justice Projects

The poster content should include a detailed description of your project.  Explain what you did, how it had an impact and the implications of your project.  You can include information about how other people can get involved, how the project could grow and develop, or what you plan to do next. 

 

10 Minute Talks

There will be multiple one-hour sessions in which 4 talks will be grouped together per session.  You will provide a presentation to an audience of Foothill students and their families and friends and Foothill faculty and staff. There will be a moderator who will introduce you and time you.  Your presentation should be high-quality and polished.
