Undergrads “Teams up” for virtual USRA Poster Session
Undergraduate scholars are ready to share their discoveries – and their summer experiences – at the 2021 Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) Virtual Poster Session, beginning November 15.
The annual poster session will be held on Microsoft Teams and run from November 15 to 19. McMaster community members can “drop by” any time during that week to view posters created by USRA presenters.
Visitors to the digital session can explore research looking at various topics – from youth and social media during the pandemic, to the Spotify algorithm and genre diversity, to using eye tracking technology to examine indicators of Autism.
How to attend
The poster session provides a couple of ways for viewers to connect with the undergrad scholars:
- “In person”: Each student will be available at a pre-scheduled time. During that hour, visitors will be able to communicate directly with each student in a variety of different ways – video, audio or live chat. The “live” schedule is available on the Team.
- Drop-in: The Team will be open to all in the McMaster community. Visitors can review digital posters and leave questions, comments and words of encouragement for USRA presenters throughout the week.
The USRA program provides an opportunity for students to experience graduate student life through hands-on research activities that span 15 weeks each summer. Activities are intended to deepen a student’s learning about a substantive area, as well as enhance their research skills.
The USRA Virtual Poster Session is coordinated by the School of Graduate Studies.Community, Research
