DaVinci Fall Forum & Promoting UG Research Conference – Sept 29, 2017


The DaVinci Institute Has Joined Our Fall Forum with the 8th Annual Promoting Undergraduate Research Conference.

The Forum/Conference will take place on| Sept. 29, 2017, at the Presbyterian Health Foundation Executive Conference Center, 655 Research Parkway, Oklahoma City from 8:30 AM – 4 PM.

The DaVinci Institute is pleased to announce morning and afternoon programming at the Promoting Undergraduate Research Conference as our 2017 Fall Forum:

§ Morning Session: “DaVinci, Creativity, and Strategies to Promote Undergraduate Research,” a 45-minute panel session with Dr. James Welch of USAO, President of the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies, and Dr. Michael Thompson of OU’s Broader Impacts in Research Office.

§ Afternoon Session: “Pathfinding Across Disciplines: Creativity & Interdisciplinarity in Undergraduate Research,” a 2.5-hour workshop format session in which we’ll help participants understand the process of
working with undergraduate students in any discipline on research that can be proposed for presentation at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research being held in April 2018 at UCO and/or at Oklahoma Research Day in March 2018. Dr. Timothy Petete of UCO, who has been extraordinarily effective in having his and other liberal arts faculty’s students accepted to present at NCUR will share ideas, experiences, and suggestions. We will also hear from two undergraduate students who presented at NCUR 2017 in Memphis, TN. This workshop session will produce takeaways for you and colleagues at your institution who want to provide a potentially transformative experience in both research and professional presentation for undergraduate students.

To register for the conference, first, check with your campus DaVinci representative. The first two registrants from DaVinci member institutions attend as part of DaVinci membership privileges.

Registrations after the first two are at the regular conference rate of $50 for faculty and $75 for administrators.
