EHDx: Talks & Posters
When: March 2019, TBD
Where: Gross Hall TBD
The EHD Theme will hold two workshops in early-March. Attendance is only required at one. This is a time to catch up with other project teams informally, share ideas and support each other. We will also take time to introduce more details about the EHD culminating event in April which includes EHDx talks, a poster session and reception.
When: mid-April 2019, TBD, 5:30-8:00 pm
Each team will put together a 5 minute – that’s it! – presentation including slides that frames the problem their team addressed, summarizes the most promising impact of the team’s work and lays out where the project might go next. Teams will present these talks during the culminating event in mid-April. We will hold a practice session in the same venue as the event a week in advance.
- One month in advance of EHDx – submit the name of the individual(s) who will give the EHDx talk
- Two weeks in advance of EHDx – submit draft slides in PowerPoint and text of talk to EHD Theme Admin
- One week in advance of EHDx – practice talks in Gross 107
- mid-April 2019 – main event in Gross 107
When: mid-April 2019, 5:30-8:00 pm
Each team will put together a poster displaying an overview of their research and any key findings. The posters will be displayed during the culminating event in mid-April. Teams should designate at least one person to stand next to their poster during the reception (students can rotate). Students should prepare an “elevator speech”, so named because it should provide everything someone needs to know about your project in the length of time you would ride in a an elevator with someone.
Students are also encouraged to submit their posters to Duke’s annual “Visible Thinking” poster session which is typically held in mid-to-late April.
