During Compinars, you will be presenting your poster content to your classmates, as well as to your Composition instructor and other students in the Learning Community. This should be considered a rehearsal for Symposium.

Requirements:
1. Presentation

  • PowerPoint presentation describing your project topic as though you were presenting a finalized poster to your audience
  • 7-10 minutes in length
  • Include a WORKS CITED on your final slide!! Citations should be in APA format.

2. Poster - Rough Draft (this is graded separately, see "Assignments & Grades" on left sidebar)

  • Tri-fold poster is required
  • Make a "mock-up"- What does that mean? Click here to find out!
  • Do not paste or tape your material to the poster!! You will more than likely need to make changes after the Compinar feedback you recieve.
    • Sticky tack will be provided ahead of time
  • You can complete your poster if you are so inclined, the more work you have to show, the better the feedback we can provide.

Key Logistics:

  • Seminar and Composition are combined on Nov 14th & 16th. Meet at 9am/12pm in UC Lonestar 142B.
  • You will be evaluated by your peers as well as your Seminar & Composition instructors.
    • Compinars are graded as a component of your overall Symposium score (weight is 10% of your final Seminar grade, and 10% of your final Composition grade)
    • Your Composition instructor will provide input on grades for Compinar/Symposium, though the final assessment is determined by your Seminar instructor
  • You will not have time to complete any work on your PowerPoint or Poster once class has begun, so come prepared!
  • Dressing up is not required for Compinars
