Sharing your research is essential for others to learn of your work and to receive feedback.

Each year hundreds of students share their work in classrooms and at events, including Middlebury’s Spring Student Symposium and professional conferences. Presentations may be oral talks, stand alone posters or online media. Below are resources for effectively conveying the importance and quality of your research.
