In October, we held a workshop for members of the Lane Honors Program and Phi Theta Kappa on how to create a CV and how to present at academic conferences. The workshop took place on our Discord server in the Honors voice channel. Claire Dannenbaum shared information about the University of Oregon’s Undergraduate Research Symposium coming up this spring. Erika Masaki discussed why someone might want to participate in an academic conference and what to expect at conferences. Ce Rosenow explained what a CV is and reviewed how to create one. Use the links in this post to access the materials shared during the workshop. You can also visit the University of Oregon’s website for information about their symposium. We will hold more workshops in winter and spring, including additional mentoring for presenting at conferences and creating ePortfolios.
1.The Western Regional Honors Conference is having a virtual conference in April. If you would like to present a paper, creative work, or academic poster at this event, you need to submit your proposal here https://www.suu.edu/wrhc2021/ prior to the deadline of February 16th, 2021. Once they group the presentations, you’ll upload your work and just give a short overview of it at your session. Then you, the other students presenting, and members like me in the Zoom audience will have a discussion and ask questions. Registration will open after the proposal deadline has passed. Early registration is $25 by April 1 and $40 after April 1. The conference is April 10. The Lane Honors Program will pay early registration for up to eight honors students! You do not have to present to attend; however, presenting is a good experience to get comfortable try it out!
2.The University of Oregon Undergraduate Research Symposium takes place May 27. You can be on a panel, read a paper, show an academic poster, share creative work including performances, or share a five-minute data story where you just explain a project you are working on that isn’t finished. Register by 5:00 pm April 12 here: https://undergradsymposium.uoregon.edu/symposium-abstract-submission. You just need to confirm you’ll participate, give the title of your work, and select the type of work you’ll be presenting. The event will be virtual and is free.
