ALEX Fall Student Research Conference
The Office of Applied Learning Experiences (ALEX) is proud to announce the University of Hawai'i at Hilo's first student research conference, to be held from 1 - 5 p.m. on Friday, November 1, 2013 in the University Classroom Building on the campus of UH Hilo.
The purpose of the conference is to both highlight student research efforts at UH Hilo and encourage and facilitate faculty use of student research in course design. The program will consist of 15 minute student research presentations using various formats (posters and podium presentations) that will be judged by faculty judges outside of the student's discipline using criteria that can be generalized across all forms of research. The focus will be on the research process and presentation, not the significance of the research findings. Awards will be presented for the top three research presentations. Students will be assessed on how well they communicate the following:
- Clearly stated research question
- Description of methods
- Results and data analysis
- Conclusion/implications for further research
In addition, students will be evaluated on their overall communication skills and poise during the presentation.
In total, there will be 40 presentations and five panel discussions delivered during the conference. Details regarding these sessions can be found in the research conference schedule
