Research Share

During Research Share (R.S.) sessions, 3-4 COSP students give a 20-minute PowerPoint presentation about their current research. An audience composed of COSP students gives the presenters meaningful, respectful, and critical feedback. This is also an opportunity to for all attendees to speak about their research in a more casual setting.

PowerPoint presentations will address the following: 1) Introduction 2) Research Question(s) 3) Methods 4) Findings 5)Implications 6) Next steps

If you are a COSP student interested in presenting, please contact COSP Writing Initiative Coordinator, Karla Padrón at padron@umn.edu
