Poster Guidelines

Participants are invited to present a poster that illustrates an arena in which they make a difference, such as:

  • curricular renovation and/or pedagogical innovation for their undergraduate students
  • advancing the field—their research direction and outcomes
  • building connections beyond the campus—to K-12 communities and/or other communities
  • other; related theme selected by participant.

These posters will be spotlighted during the opening night reception, an opportunity for participants to connect to and learn from colleagues pursuing similar objectives and overcoming common barriers to change.

Each poster entry should have a title box that includes

  • Author
  • Title & Department
  • Institution
  • Email

Each poster should then describe:

  • the process by which the vision was shaped, including barriers or roadblocks to overcome
  • who was/is involved in the process
  • how resources were identified and secured
  • what difference these efforts are making for students, and how you know
  • your vision for the future in this arena/area.
