Faculty Research Forum and Research
As part of Research Month activities, the Office of the Provost
and the Center for Teaching and Learning are sponsoring the annual
Faculty Research Forum. This event will provide an
opportunity for all faculty, funded or not, to showcase their
research through posters, interactive presentations, exhibits, and
personal discussions with their colleagues. In furthering the
University’s goal of fostering a culture of academic excellence, we
hope that you will consider participating by presenting your
research. If you have visual materials you want to share,
there will be poster boards available (36x48 white tri-fold
boards), or you can use your laptop to show slides, run a video,
make a web presentation or use software you’ve developed.
Maybe your research is text-based and you feel leery about
standing in front of a poster board with a 20-page paper set out
page by page. You can take a different approach. Bring
a few copies of your articles and share them with colleagues.
We will have tables devoted to a variety of areas from the social
sciences to theology. Still another alternative is for a
group of colleagues to make a poster presentation together.
No matter how you decide to participate, the important thing is to
share your work because you will be contributing to the vitality of
the intellectual life at the University.
The Forum will take place on Thursday, April 3, 2014
from noon to 3 p.m. in the D’Angelo Center room 416.
Displays may be set up between 11 a.m. and noon that day. The
Research Reception will be held in the same location, with the
annual presentation to take place during common hour. If you are
willing to make a presentation at the Research Forum, please
contact Lisa Getman at the Center for Teaching and Learning (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday, March
12, indicating (a) the title of your presentation;
(b) a paragraph-long abstract, 300 words or less, describing the
research project which will be published in the brochure and on the
CTL website; (c) include presenters’ names, College, Department
(please note if a co-presenter is a student) and (d) whether you
need a table or display board. Due to limited space, multiple
presentations by one faculty member will be given no more than 2
presentation stations, but all abstracts submitted will be printed
in the Research Forum booklet.
We will have an area set aside to display reprints of faculty
authors’ publications. Please send at least two copies of a
reprint to the Center for Teaching and Learning by March 26 to be
included in this display.
