Research & Service Leadership Symposium

Presentation Formats

10-Minute Talks

There will be multiple one-hour sessions in which several talks will be grouped together. 

You will provide a presentation to an audience of Foothill students and faculty, as well as family and friends.  There will be a moderator who will introduce you and time you.  This is an opportunity to explain your work to others who are interested in hearing your views and insights.   

Types of Project Talks

Research Projects

The content of your talk should include background information, research question, hypothesis, methodology, results, conclusions and implications of your project.


Service Leadership, Environmental Justice, and Political Activism Projects

The content of your talk should include a detailed description of your project.  Explain what you did, how it had an impact, and the implications of your work. 

Poster Presentations

The need to be virtual has eliminated the poster sessions that were done in the past.  The poster content that formerly was displayed on a 3’ by 4’ poster can be put into a slide sequence and delivered as a 10 minute talk with voiceover.

Art Project Presentations

An art project might be paintings, photography, sculpture, ceramics, music, a theatrical event.  The virtual format will not allow a traditional art or sculpture gallery, but you can present your work with a video showing images, ceramics or sculpture.   Or you could do a video showing the process or creation. Music and performance videos are encouraged.  You are artists!  Art of any kind is especially welcome to our society during the time of Covid.  Please Share.  But limit any presentation to 10 minutes or less.
