For the fifth year in a row, the UW Tacoma Library will be hosting the Graduate Research Showcase, an event that offers our students a forum to publicly share their work. In partnership with the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC), the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, and UW Tacoma graduate programs, the Graduate Research Showcase is modeled after the successful Scholars' Studio at UW Seattle. Students will present TAC Talks (short, five-minute lightning talks by UW Tacoma graduate students), and there is also as well as a poster session. The 2018 theme is DISRUPTION.
We seek examples of academic and professional work: UW Tacoma graduate students are welcome to apply to present on an internship they are doing, a research paper they’ve written, or on other professional experiences they have pursued.
Accepted students will be coached through the process of preparing their work, and receive individualized feedback on their proposal, their poster, or their PowerPoint. TAC Talks not only give graduate students the opportunity to inform the whole campus and local community about the exciting work coming out of UW Tacoma graduate programs, but allows them to get feedback and make professional and academic connections in a supportive, interdisciplinary environment. All presentations are recorded and deposited in UW Tacoma Digital Commons.
