The annual Student Scholar Showcase provides students with an opportunity to present their scholarly, research, creative, and/or service-learning projects to the campus community.
Student projects may include scholarly papers, creative writing projects, scientific or historical research projects, or performance arts projects, and may be presented in a variety of formats, including oral presentations and poster presentations. Project guidelines include the following:
- Sciences/Mathematics – an appropriate project in the sciences involves laboratory, computational, or field work that is designed to resolve a question or test a hypothesis.
- Social Sciences – such research projects are concerned with new knowledge for the sake of development of the field, or addressing or solving immediate questions or problems within the social sciences.
- Humanities – projects in the humanities involve historical, critical, or analytical studies that pursue an original question and/or work in a substantive way with primary and secondary sources. Projects in the humanities also include such creative writing as original prose, poetry, drama, and combined forms.
- Professional – submissions in this category will involve qualitative or quantitative projects that examine a theory-based or application-based problem or emphasize application of theory to practice. Original case writings, critiques of research literature, or evaluations of outcomes of practice are also acceptable.
- Arts – satisfactory artistic projects in art, music, theater, and film will be of the student’s own composition, with guidance from a faculty mentor. Examples include paintings, sculptures, photographic displays, musical compositions, dramatic performances, and video projects.
- Service Learning – projects that describe a service experience and the link to related course content. Projects may be presented as posters or as oral presentations. Service-learning projects require the approval of course faculty.
- Internships – submissions in this category will be descriptions and summaries of experiences obtained during LC-sponsored internships. Projects may be presented as posters, and require the approval of faculty mentors.
Are you doing human subject research? Before you present your results, make sure you’ve been approved by the Lynchburg College institutional Review Board (IRB). More information may be found here.
