From 29 November to 1 December, we had the privilege of hosting three exceptional student poster presentation sessions for CENG 1600 Biotechnology and Its Business Opportunities and CHEM 4689 Capstone Project.
These sessions were a testament to the remarkable collaborative efforts between our esteemed faculty and dedicated librarians, whose fruitful partnerships have flourished since 2018 and 2016, respectively.
In addition to providing the LG4 multi-function room as the venue for these presentations, our SciTech Librarians have been unwavering in their commitment to supporting the CENG 1600 and CHEM 4689 courses. They offered tailored workshops, equipping students with quality search tools and effective strategies to locate relevant and reliable information sources. Emphasizing the ethical and responsible use of information sources, our workshops covered essential aspects such as proper citation, copyright compliance, and creative commons licensing.
Moreover, our librarians extended personalized consultation sessions to assist students with their research endeavors (CHEM 4689) and provided a rubric to facilitate the evaluation of the students’ poster presentations (CENG 1600).
Throughout the research process until the final presentation, students acquired invaluable skills in critical thinking and analysis, enabling them to translate their ideas into thoughtfully designed posters. The insightful feedback received from faculty members, librarians, and peers further enriched their understanding of various research domains. The collective creativity and enthusiasm displayed by the students left our faculty, teaching assistants, and librarians absolutely thrilled!
We take immense pride in our commitment to supporting our students and faculty members in their academic pursuits. Looking ahead, we wish to foster more fruitful collaborations in the future.
