Research and Arts Colloquium Workshop Series
The OUR has partnered with USF Library Digital Media Commons (DMC) to expand the Colloquium Preparatory Workshop series. In addition to the OUR Abstract, Poster, and Oral Workshops, the DMC will offer three workshop topics, each designed to help you develop alternative approaches to poster or oral presentation design. See below for the full list of workshop topics and to register.
Preparation workshops are scheduled each spring prior to the Undergraduate Research and Arts Colloquium. Workshop topics are listed below:
OUR Preparatory Workshops
Developing and Writing a Persuasive Research Abstract Workshop
Students will be given advice on the “best practices” for developing an abstract for presentation at a research conference. Topics include: What reviewers are looking for, how to develop a concise hypothesis/goal, composing the different sections on the abstract, the most effective way to state the conclusions, how to work with results that are not yet complete, and a discussion of authorship. This workshop is designed for students in all years of study who desire to improve the effectiveness of their writing, and is strongly recommended for students preparing an application for the Undergraduate Research and Arts Colloquium.
Developing an Effective Research Poster Workshop
Topics include: What to Expect on Colloquium Day, Poster “Basics”, Formatting Tips, and best practices for interacting with facilitators. Attendees are encouraged to bring “draft” posters to the session to receive feedback and get help crafting their presentations.
Crafting an Oral Presentation
Topics include: What to Expect on Colloquium Day, Presentation “Basics” and Formatting Tips. Attendees are encouraged to bring “draft” presentations to the session to receive feedback and get help crafting their presentations.
DMC Preparatory Workshops
Visually Designing Your Research: Creating a Research Poster with Adobe InDesign
The Undergraduate of Research and Arts Colloquium is a signature event in which students present their current research to the USF community. The Office of Undergraduate Research and the Digital Media Commons have come together to assist students with their poster, by showing them how to utilize Adobe InDesign to creatively and efficiently design their research poster.
- Understand basic design principles like color and symmetry
- Learn beginning InDesign tools to design an engaging and informative research poster
- Learn how to format and creatively layout pictures, texts, and graphs
Beyond Powerpoint: New Tools to Spice Up Your Oral Presentation
In this workshop, we will identify and review a variety of online multimedia tools that can supplement or replace PowerPoint and help you create and deliver high-quality and engaging oral presentations.
