ABSTRACTS & PRESENTATIONS
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION IS CLOSED. For questions regarding abstracts contact:
Maggie R Borders, M.A. (she/her), Kansas State University
All presentations will be scheduled and conducted through our conference app, Whova. Student presentations will be organized into 50-minute blocks consisting of presenters in similar areas of study (to the extent possible). Student presentations will be pre-recorded. Each presenter is allowed a maximum length of 10 minutes for their recording. There will be a live Q&A session with each student presenter after their pre-recorded presentation is shown, thus each student presenter needs to be in virtual attendance during their presentation panel.
Anyone planning to present a poster will be scheduled with the oral presentations and will need to record a video. This video can be shorter to allow for longer Q&A time similar to a poster session.
As you prepare your video, please keep in mind that poster text is often too small to read on a screen, we recommend the following set-up for a poster recording:
- Put a screenshot of your whole poster in a PPT slide and use that as the opening introduction.
- In subsequent slides, show screenshots of the relevant pieces of your poster shown larger so that as you talk about them and record. The audience will be able to see the relevant piece.
- End your presentation back at the full poster view.
- For the Q&A, have that PPT ready so that you can flip to the zoomed in image slides to address questions.
VIDEO RECORDING: It is important you plan ahead for recording your video and have it reviewed by your mentors. Graduate fair reps will watch your talk, and you can use the video to share your work to your prospective faculty advisor. Refer to the links below on preparing an online presentations as well as model sample video presentations.
VIDEO SUBMISSION: Video submissions are due by September 18, 2020. Each McNair Program’s staff will be provided with access to upload student videos to the conference YouTube channel. For instructions on how to upload, please refer to the upload tutorial (written instructions in the description). Please also watch the Troubleshooting Access tutorial (3.25 minutes) as well to avoid the most common access concerns.
