Information for Presenters
All students will create pre-recorded, 3-minute lightning talks, which will be hosted on Canvas. Each student will host their own discussion board where peers, mentors, and other OSU community members will ask questions and engage in dialogue during the event.
A few students will be selected to deliver live, 10-minute plenary presentations* over Zoom, in addition to their lightning talk. Students can indicate their interest in the SURS application to present plenary talks.
