    Which type of session are you registering?  

    /uploadedImages/Ship/Research-Students/OralPresentation.jpgStudent Oral Presentations: This type of session consists of students delivering talks to an audience. We will schedule students 20 minutes apart unless we receive other instructions from you. Presentations may relate by discipline, but not necessarily be related by a specific theme.



    Department Panel Presentations: This type of session consists of a panel of several student discussants at the front of the room, and a moderator. The moderator (who could be a faculty member or student) opens the session with an introduction then turns the discussion over to the panel members. Throughout the session the moderator keeps answers on track, makes sure that all panel members get to speak, and may field questions from the audience. 

    Present roundtableConcurrent Roundtables: In this type of session, several students present their work simultaneously at different locations in the same room (at round tables, of course), and the audience splits itself up among the presenters. When the student presentations end, the audience members move to a new speaker and the students repeat their presentations to the next group that gathers around them. If there are four student speakers speaking simultaneously, you might plan for them to repeat their talks two, three, or four times. In this type of session we cannot provide a computer and projector to each student. However, an outlet and an easel can be arranged.
