Student Research Day
Mount Royal University's Student Research Day is held each year at the end of the spring term. It showcases and celebrates the accomplishments and projects of our undergraduate researchers. Student Research Day will this year be held on April 2, 2014 on Main Street.
Student Research Day is the largest of many other poster or presentation sessions that happen across campus throughout the year. These include:
- Dec. 12/2013: Health & Community Studies Scholars Showcase
- Feb. 12/2014: Teaching and Learning - Lincoln Park Room
- Mar. 28/2014: Science and Technology - Student Poster/Talk event
- March 2014: Arts - Psychology
- April 2014: Arts - Humanities
- April 2014: Communications Studies
You are encouraged to present in your Faculty/Dept event AND this one. SRD covers all levels and types of research activity such as
- Literature reviews
- Classroom based research
- Individual projects
- Group projects
- And many more!
Interested in Presenting?
Everyone is invited -- you don't have to be in a research course to present. Talk to your instructor and let them know that you are interested in showcasing your project. There will be seminars and on-line help sessions on developing your poster . So whether your entire class is involved, or just you, help is available.
SRD will focus on posters and multi-media only this year. Oral presentations are typically part of the Faculty/Dept events noted above. So the options are:
- Posters - 2½ x 3½ research posters or
- Multi-Media Presentations: (10 min max).
Each poster and presentation will be accompanied by a half page written abstract which will be published in the on-line event program and archive.
Who's Invited?Everyone! Students, faculty, visitors-you name it, we want them there. We are encouraging instructors to fit this into their class schedules so that all students have a chance to attend.
The registration form is available now. There will be no limits on number of presenters - but the earlier you register the more help we can give you. We know that many projects will be in-progress when you apply, and maybe even when you present - but that's like any scholarly conference - most are works in progress.
