Join us for a one-day event where hundreds of students from across the university share new knowledge, new understanding, and creative and technical innovation brought forward through scholarly process.
The showcase is free and open to the entire campus community. Come and support these students' educational and professional development as researchers, creators and communicators!
The Great Hall and Atrium house one set of research posters in the morning and a different set in the afternoon. Research topics relate to one of these categories:
- Sustainability & Ecological Diversity
- Social Justice & Well-Being
- Health & Body
- Teaching & Learning
- New Frontiers
At midday, students will present their work with accompanying slides in Podium Presentations in the fourth floor conference rooms and in a Capstone Competition in the Cinema on Level 200.
