Research and Scholarship Showcase

Graduate Student Organization

The Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development Graduate Student Organization (GSO), the Office of Research, and the Office of Student Affairs are enthusiastic sponsors of the Research and Scholarship Showcase. The 8th Annual Showcase will take place on Wednesday, April 22, 2020, at 10:00 am in the Grand Hall of the Center for Academic and Spiritual Life.

Please join us this year to witness the wide range of research being conducted by students (from all degree levels) at Steinhardt. There will be oral presentations, traditional poster presentations, and poster presentations with a multimedia component. Come to cheer on a classmate, learn more, and witness #SteinhardtScholars in action! Please submit your application to participate in the 8th Annual Research and Scholarship Showcase by March 13, 2020.  

Oral Presentations 

Oral presentations should be no longer than five minutes in length. Questions and answers should be tabled until the end of each presentation. A projector will be available for PowerPoint and if you decide to use it you should forward your presentation to Nija Leocadio ( so that it can be loaded onto the laptop. Your presentation should include a brief synopsis of your research question, how you answered that question, and your results.

Poster Presentations 

You may use a Poster Template like this one or create your own. The library has created a very useful resource for creating posters.

Poster guidelines are as follows:

  • A maximum of 40” x 28”
  • Hardbacked to rest on an easel
  • Font between 20 and 24 inches
  • Title that includes the name of the author(s) and is approximately one inch tall

Below are suggested sections that you may want to include on your poster: 

  • Abstract
  • Methods
  • Results or findings 
  • Discussion
  • Acknowledgments (Optional)

Please work with your mentor or adviser on the creation of your poster.

Poster Presentations with a Multimedia Component

This type of presentation is new to the showcase. You must include a multimedia supplement to your application but it does not have to be a video. This is a space for you to creatively represent your research and disseminate your findings in non-traditional ways. If selected for this type of presentation you will be given an easel for your traditional poster as well as a high table for your laptop. You will also be judged in a separate category from the poster sessions.
