Spring Research Conference 2018

The Spring Research Conference is jointly sponsored by the University of Louisville, The University of Kentucky and the University of Cincinnati. The conference location rotates among the three institutions annually.

This conference is free for all College of Education students, faculty, and staff at UL, UC, and UK. Those outside of the College of Education who wish to attend should contact the spring research conference committee:

The purpose of the conference is to provide undergraduate, master and doctoral students an opportunity to present research proposals in a friendly, yet formal, setting and to get constructive feedback from faculty and colleagues. It is a great way to prepare for larger conferences!

Paper Session (10 minutes per paper; 60 minutes total per session)

Papers will be presented orally to an audience and include a description of completed research or research in progress. The presentation should highlight key information related to the rationale, methodology, analysis, results and discussion. All oral presentations will be 10 minutes in length, with 4 minutes for questions from the audience. The moderator will be in charge of timing the presentation and holding up “5 minute,”“3 minute,” and “1 minute” signs to indicate the remaining time in the presentation. Please plan accordingly.

Poster Session (60 minutes) Poster presentations allow presenters and attendees to engage in discussions about the author’s research findings, new ideas, innovations and possible advances in the profession. Poster materials should briefly highlight the key components related to the particular type of work. While it is not required that a presenter attend to the poster during the entire length of the poster session, only presenters attending to their poster when judges review poster will receive feedback. There are no restrictions for posters. Your poster should be able to be mounted with painter’s tape onto the wall or on an easel; painter’s tape and easels will be provided. You should arrive about five minutes ahead of the session time, and you should remove your poster when the time period is over.
