Online Celebration is an opportunity for students to present their research and creativity in an online forum.

What is Online Celebration?
With unique research projects on display, Online Celebration helps to increase understanding of the important role online student research and creativity plays in the education of our students at NKU.
When is Online Celebration?
We plan to have two online celebrations - at the end of Fall and Spring semesters.  Fall 2020 Online Celebration will be December 3-4, 2020.  The Celebration Canvas shell will open to view presentations at 8am on December 3rd until 8pm on December 4th.
Who is eligible?
Participants must be registered students at NKU during the 2019-2020 academic year. The research project must be of sufficient quality to be presented at a professional academic meeting.

What do I submit?
Students will submit a VoiceThread presentation with at least one slide and oral description of their project. There is a tutorial in the Canvas shell for your convenience. Student may present up to five slides but preference is a poster design on one slide. Students should provide an oral discussion of their poster (max 4 minutes) for the audience.  These presentations should be submitted here by November 23rd at 8pm.  Not sure how to set up Voice Thread? There will be a Zoom session to help on Thursday, November from 4 to 6pm

Poster Template:  PowerPoint Template 3x4ft.pptx.

Why is this important?
Providing student with the opportunity to engage in scholarly, research, and creative work is important to our students’ educational experience and professional development. We encourage faculty to have their students participate in various student research exhibits - Online Celebration or others.
How do I submit?
Students will submit their name, abstract and their VoiceThread presentation by November 23rd at 8pm. Click here to submit. There is a tutorial within the Canvas shell.

Students unclear on how to write an abstract or design a poster should review the resources here.
