Research Colloquium Facilitators
Do you have a passion for student success? Serve as a Colloquium Facilitator!
The OUR is currently accepting applications from USF faculty, staff, graduate students, postdocs and alumni who want to participate in the 2015 Undergraduate Research and Arts Colloquium as Colloquium Facilitators. The Colloquium will be held on Thursday April 9, 2015 in the USF Marshall Student Center and will be part of the USF week celebration. As a facilitator, you will engage for ~90 minutes with undergraduate researchers about their work during one of the 2.5 hr. sessions. This is NOT a judging role, but simply a chance to engage the researchers in a formative discussion about their work and provide feedback to them on their communication skills. Therefore, facilitators do not need to be content experts and just need to be enthusiastic individuals who are interested in learning about the student’s research projects in an interactive manner. All facilitators will only be assigned to speak with 6-8 students to encourage a 12-15 minute interaction. Facilitators will complete a feedback rubric for each researcher and will have an opportunity to nominate an exceptional student for a Research Excellence Award. The OUR will also provide several facilitator training sessions in March 2015 to enhance engagement skills.
