Semi-Annual Student Research Forum
Psychology Department Poster Session
Held twice a year in the fall and in the spring, the Student
Research Forum is sponsored by the Department of Psychology
to showcase student research. The student researchers include
undergraduate studetns who have completed research projects
in their research methods course, senior honors thesis or
other honors projects, and independent study. The research
project culminates with a public presentation of the work
in a poster session. This one-hour event (held one afternoon
during the last week of each semester) features posters created
by the students to present their research. Attendees, including
faculty and students, are able to wander among the posters
and talk to the students about their research.
Posters are highly visual and are intended to provide student
researchers with the opportunity to engage in discussions
about their work. The forum also provides opportunities for
attendees to have the pleasure of learning about student researchers'
work and to share their own research experiences. The session
develops the students' skills in talking about their work
with professionals and other students in the discipline. Thus,
the forum is not just a showcase, it serves a useful educational
purpose as well. Great work students!
