Past & Current Programs
For those of you unfamiliar with the format of an academic conference panel, here are a few samples to watch:
Make note of the following panel components:
A chairperson introduces the panel topic/theme and then introduces each of the presenters
Each presenter then summarizes her/his research project for the audience
merely read their paper to the audience.
Instead, they engage the audience with their thesis, methodology, examples, etc.
Visual aids are certainly acceptable!
After all presenters have concluded, a respondent ends the session with a brief discussion about the research presented.
These sample panels are
longer in length than what you will see &/or participate in at the Collin College Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Student Research Conference.
Generally, our panels will occupy a 50-minute slot.
This means each student will speak for approximately 6-7 minutes
