Presentation Resources

Spring Symposium presentations are five minutes per presenter, with questions taken at the end of the presentation session. Undergraduate researchers are welcome to be creative in their presentation creation.

Presentations must be created in google slides for accessibility purposes, but may be oriented in single slide poster form, or a multi-slide presentation form. Short videos or website URL's must be embeded into the slide presentation.

Any questions about presentations contact urop.symposium@umich.edu

All presentations must be uploaded to the UROP Office no later than Monday, April 12th at NOON. Edits to the presentation will not be allowed once the presentation has been uploaded.

Making Presentations Accessible

One important aspect of presentation is ensuring that your presentation is accessible by a broad range of people. Accessibility is the practice of making sure that all individuals can access your presentation.

Extra Poster Tips

Make sure your content is visible

Creating a single poster to be displayed over a virtual screen allows your audience to read the entire poster, but make sure that all of the text is legible and images come through on such a small screen.

Limit the amount of text

This may sound counterintuitive but pictures, charts, and graphs are often better at conveying information. Also, think about how long someone is actually going to read your poster or slide. It probably won’t be very long, so make sure that they can go away with an understanding of what your project was about.

Make your title stand out!

This is what will catch people’s attention and make them want to stop and look at your poster. The title should be your largest text. You can also use a different font and colors to make it stand out further.

Keep your font types consistent

While it’s okay to use a few different types to make different sections stand out; try to limit your poster to using no more than three font types.

Giving credit where it’s due

List all authors involved in with your research project, and be sure to include everyone’s correct titles (ex. Dr., Professor, etc.)!!

Put the department your project came out of (ex. Pharmacology, Anthropology, etc.)
