Give a presenter feedback

This year, SURF is going to run a little bit differently than it has ever before. ICRU hopes to provide a valuable presentation experience for all of its undergraduates. We have designed this event with the following thoughts:

  • Presenting is an incredibly valuable experience for developing researchers;
  • Zoom fatigue is real and present;
  • Schedules for presenters and audience members are hectic;
  • Virtual presentations are now a common place part of life.
  • Undergraduate Research Week is April 19-23, 2021.

Give these few thoughts, ESURF will occur during Undergraduate Research Week and will consist only of 3-5 minute, pre-recorded presentations. No live events will occur. (Students who wish to present live should consider the ICRU Lecture Series.) Videos will be released throughout the week on ICRU's website and social media channels. Feedback from commentators (at the undergraduate, graduate, post-doc, and faculty level) will be provided if students wish to receive feedback.
