Loyola graduate students were invited to present their research in the form of a poster session at “Emerging Scholars: A Celebration of Graduate Research.” The sixth annual event occurred on Friday, April 24, 2015.
A poster session provided presenters a forum to informally present their work to the Loyola community in the context of a wine and cheese reception and awards ceremony (see an example of a very large-scale poster session). The Ferguson Gallery provided a perfect setting to allow attendees to view presenters' posters, ask questions, and discuss ideas.
Presenters were provided large, 8’ x 4’ bulletin boards for posting their research. Up to two presenters (or groups of presenters) shared space on each side of the board. The University paid for professional printing of accepted presentations, up to 42” x 42” in dimension, for the Emerging Scholars event. Learn more about this printing offer.
Poster sessions could have been based on research conducted for a paper, capstone project, thesis or dissertation, or case study. Research could have been in various stages of completion, and could have come from any discipline. See some tips and guidelines.
