Virtual Symposium Showcases Student Work

April 16, 2020

St. John Fisher College is continuing its tradition of celebrating the excellent work of students during the fourth annual Student Research and Creative Work Symposium. This year, the cross-disciplinary event will feature a new twist as undergraduate and graduate presentations of research, creative work, or products from internships, student teaching, service, and study abroad experiences will happen virtually on Friday, April 24.

Since its inception, the Student Research and Creative Work Symposium has allowed more than 750 students to do the teaching while faculty and staff do the learning for an afternoon. This year, the event will happen on the freely available symposium platform, ForagerOne, and live presentations via Zoom. Content will be available for viewing through Monday, April 26.

“We know that the online event will not be the same as the normal celebratory afternoon, but students deserved the opportunity to share and be the experts for the day,” said Dr. Kristin Picardo, director of the Center for Student Research and Creative Work. “Despite having to learn and navigate this new way of operating, we are all gaining new skills in the process. I am excited that our students will now have been able to participate in a virtual event and can do so again moving forward with confidence.”
