Final Exam Presentation Information

In lieu of a final exam, your class is scheduled to participate in the student conference on May 6th. We need approximately 9 students from your class to present their research, approximately 3 students to chair a panel, and the rest to attend the conference and ask one question during the Q&A period. I will be more than happy to visit your class for five minutes or so to coach students on their respective roles. (Strategies for asking questions panel members will be able to answer. Strategies for responding to questions when you don’t have an answer. What a panel chair does. etc.). Let me know. I'll need the names and titles for students who will read or chair by April 21st so I can schedule panels for the conference. Please remind students that volunteering is a real commitment. Their name will be published on a panel poster. But it is a great experience and one they can put on their resume. All students must attend the entire afternoon of panel presentations.

The panels will be scheduled in 30 minute intervals and will work as follows:
1) The chair will introduce the panel topic and the first reader.
2) The student will read their work, and the chair will introduce the next reader.
3) After all the students (about 3 readers per panel) have read their work, the chair will ask the audience for questions. Audience members can ask individual panel members a question or they can address their questions to the entire panel.
4) The chair will facilitate these questions (calling on raised hands) and then will end the panel when questions peter out or when 25 minutes has passed (which ever comes first).
5) Students will stay for the next panel presentations (they can switch rooms between sessions at about 2:30).

Students will be given the following info:

You’ve been scheduled to present your work, chair a panel, or ask a question of presenters from 1:30-4:00 on May 6th. Presenters and chairs should show up a few minutes before 1:30 so that chairs have a chance to talk to the presenters about how they want to be introduced.

No matter your role, this will be a great experience (and something you can put on a resume!)

The panels will be scheduled in 30 minute intervals and will work as follows:
1) The first session begins at 1:30.
2) The chair and readers for the first panel will sit at the table at the front of the room.
3) The chair will introduce the panel topic and the first reader.
4) The student will read their work, and the chair will introduce the next reader.
5) After all the students (3 readers per panel) have read their work, the chair will ask the audience for questions. Audience respondents will ask individual panel members a question or they will address their questions to the entire panel.
6) The chair will facilitate these questions (calling on raised hands) and then will end the panel when the 30 minutes have passed.
7) Students will stay for the second panel.
8) There will be a short break for refreshments and then the second session (also containing two panels) begins at approximately 2:45.
