Making the Most of Multi-Disciplinary Undergraduate Research Conferences
Hill, Jennifer; West, Harry; Kneale, Pauline
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v42 n2 p311-316 2018
This is the second of two Directions articles, which together offer guidance to help the reader gain the maximum benefit from participating in institutional and national multi-disciplinary undergraduate research conferences. The earlier article introduced undergraduate research conferences, summarized the key benefits of participating in such events, and talked the reader through the steps that should be taken to prepare an effective verbal or poster presentation. The focus of this article is on how to make the most of these excellent opportunities when participating. To do this, it is important to understand the importance of networking and engaging with the full conference programme. The participant also needs to be able to identify and action the principles of effective research communication. This paper provides the information needed to work through this process.
