Description

Professional chemists are expected to present their research using appropriate media. The quality of the presentation is in many ways a direct reflection of the perceived ability of the chemist. The quality of the presentation can be even more important than the quality of work represented by the chemist. Student presentations will be assessed in a three-step process, and feedback will be given to the students after each evaluation phase.

The process includes an initial verbal presentation using PowerPoint, a poster to be presented at the American Chemical Society national meeting or at a departmental meeting, and a revised poster to be presented at the UWF Student Scholars Symposium. Feedback will be provided after each step, and students will be given the opportunity to revise and improve their content and communication skills.
