Guidelines for Presenters

Format for Podium Presentations

There is 15 minutes reserved for each presenter. The presentation will be 10 minutes followed by questions.

The presenter should bring their presentation (saved on a flashstick). The presentation should also be backed up on the presenter’s H Drive and/or on an email account that can be easily accessed (in case the flashstick does not work).

How are the poster presentations organized?

At the symposium, we will have a moderator with a microphone. Students will present their posters to each other in an organized manner: 2.5 minute presentations followed by 2.5 minute discussions. Students will “rotate” after each presentation.

Students will:

  • Present their poster 3 times
  • Listen to 3 other students present

The organized presentations will take 30 minutes. The remaining 30 minutes will be “open” for free discussion and networking.

Do students need IRB approval?

Any IRB questions should be directed to our helpful and energetic Research Compliance Coordinator, Rebecca Schroder, MSN, at

If students want to present data from “official” research projects (conducted with a faculty member) the project should already have IRB approval. That is a requirement of the data collection.

What if students want to present data from “class projects”? Typically, students can do this with an “exempt” review (completed by Rebecca). Please contact Rebecca to discuss your class projects and learn how to have students apply for an exempt review (if needed).
