iSchool Student Showcase 2021

Student Showcase 2021

The iSchool Student Showcase will be held online from 4:00-5:00 p.m. CT on both Friday, April 2, and Wednesday, April 7.

Current BS/IS and master’s students will present work on a broad range of topics relating to the information sciences. Talks can focus on research, class papers or projects, practicum or internship work. This year, twenty presenters will pre-record their talks before they are shown to a live audience. Presenters will be present for a live Q&A. This format will allow for more robust discussion and enhanced networking opportunities during the event, which is free and open to all.
