What are the benefits of participation?
The conference will give undergraduate students (from first to final year) from colleges and universities across Ireland the opportunity to present their research and showcase their creative accomplishments through posters, performances, workshops and oral presentations.
This is a great opportunity for participants as it will provide you with feedback on your work, tips on presenting, and real life experience of presenting at an academic conference - not to mention networking opportunities.
During the conference you will be able to meet and talk to other undergraduate researchers and faculty from both your own and other disciplines, and you will also be able to learn about how other disciplines approach research problems.
‘By heightening awareness and creating dialogue, it is hoped research can lead to better understanding of the way things appear to someone else and through this insight lead to improvements in practice.’ – Barritt (1986: 20)
