Welcome back to seminar, my favorite young people!!!

Only 1 seminar class after today

Thursday, April 27, everyone will attend First-Year Research Conference for class attendance and a grade.

Here is the FYRC Schedule!

FYRC Etiquette

  • Please remember that each session lasts for a full hour. In order to be polite, you must enter the room on time and stay for all the presenters to complete their presentations before you leave.
  • Please silence all cell phones and electronic devices and do not take calls or text during the presentations.
  • Review sheets for audience members are provided at the door. Be sure to fill them out and turn them into your seminar BlackBoard. You are expected to review one hour's worth of presentations (either 3 presentations or 1 panel).
  • Remember that conferences are sites for intellectual exchange, so try to engage the speakers with questions at the end of their presentations. The panel chair will facilitate Q&A.
  • All presenters should wear appropriate business/semi-formal attire and should practice their presentations to ensure a professional delivery.
  • Guests may be invited to attend the sessions.
  • If for any reason you cannot present when scheduled, contact Brandi Kutil at 825-3456 or brandi.kutil@tamucc.edu ASAP.

For Seminar:

  • You may opt to go at any time of the day between 8 am and 5 pm.
  • Complete a review form on 3 individual presentations OR one 45 minute panel.
  • Scan the forms into a pdf file and upload them into BlackBoard. Pictures (JPG, PNG, etc.) will not be accepted.
    • If you do not have access to a scanner, there are free apps such as Genius Scan which you can download that will turn pictures into pdf files.

Due Sunday, April 30, by 5 pm.

Office hours: Practice with FYRC presenters; if you need to meet, please email me so we can schedule something.
