Conference to present research by psychology undergrads

More than 150 psychology students from across Ontario will present their undergraduate thesis research at an online conference hosted by the University of Windsor on Friday, May 12.

The annual Ontario Psychology Undergraduate Thesis Conference rotates among the province’s psychology departments, notes UWindsor professor Kathryn Lafreniere, one of its organizers.

Students will present in one of two formats:

  • live oral presentations in 12 sessions available only to registrants
  • posters in the form of animated GIFs displayed on the website for all

Dr. Lafreniere calls the graphics posters an interesting exercise in knowledge translation.

“It’s an engaging way to distill and present research findings,” she says. “In developing them, the students have to reduce their message and consider what is truly valuable.”

Registration for the conference is free and closes today: May 9. Find a full program and registration details on its dedicated website.
