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 serve as Facilitators during the 2016 Undergraduate Research and Arts Colloquium. The Colloquium will be held on Wednesday April 6, 2016 in the USF Marshall Student Center and will be part of the USF week celebration. Colloquium Facilitators will engage with student presenters ( between 6-8) and complete a short feedback rubric. The primary role of facilitators is to provide support and useful feedback to student presenters (This is NOT a judging role). Facilitators do not need to be content experts, however, they must possess a high level of enthusiasm and strong interest in undergraduate research. The OUR will provide several optional training sessions in March 2016 to answer questions about facilitator responsibilities and expectations, and to provide clarification regrading facilitator “best practices”.
Expectations of the Facilitators
On the Day of the Colloquium facilitators will:
- Provide positive feedback to up to 8 student presenters during a 90-minute session (Facilitators may participate in more than one session).
- Enthusiastically engage student presenters in formative discussions about their research.
- Provide feedback regarding student presentation style and communication skills.
- Complete a short feedback rubric for each student researcher.
