Presentation Options for Stander 2021

We are providing multiple options for students to share and showcase their mentored academic work for the Bro. Joseph W. Stander Symposium on Thursday, April 22, 2021.

  • Live virtual sessions - present on April 22 between 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. EDT; you pick the time and share the URL for attendees to join your virtual session. We recommend recording your live session and providing it to Stander for on demand viewing after the live event.
  • In-Person porch projects - present on your house porch between 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. EDT; you pick the time on April 22 and provide us with your address. Masks and physical distancing are required. You present from your porch, the audience watches from the lawn. This format can also be broadcast live virtually and/or be recorded for on demand viewing later.
  • Recorded sessions on demand - submit a video recording of you giving your presentation by Thursday, April 15. We recommend recording your live virtual and in-person sessions for on demand viewing after the live event.
  • PDF files on demand - submit your poster or presentation slides by Thursday, April 15.

eCommons, a service of the University Libraries, will serve as the Stander event and content platform. eCommons is a permanent multimedia archive of UD's continuous pursuit of transformative education and world-changing research. Recorded presentations will be available on April 22, along with PDFs of posters and presentation slides. Any live sessions happening on April 22 will be listed online with their URLs or porch address for attendees to join.

Project Formats

Poster: 3-5 minutes for recorded poster presentations. A poster template is available on the presenter resources page.

Oral Presentation: We recommend 20 minutes for live oral presentations; this allows 15 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions. For recorded presentations 10-15 minutes is recommended.

Panel Discussion: A panel is a group of 3-4 presenters (or more) with a moderator on a shared topic and represent a variety of perspectives. Panels work best when the presenters interact with one another and the audience, and organized around a series of questions. We recommend 20-30 minutes for live panel discussions; 10-20 minutes for recorded panels.

Visual Arts Display and Performance: Displays can be either physical or digital, and performances can be live or on video. Consider including a brief discussion by the presenters to engage the audience. We recommend 10-15 minutes for live performances and displays; 8-10 minutes for recorded performances and displays.

Other Presentation Format (i.e. competitions, forums, interactive sessions, workshops, etc.) should be proposed to the Stander Coordinator as soon as possible.
