Faculty Research Day

Faculty Research Day 2021

Faculty Research Day, October 6, 2021
1 p.m. – 2:25 p.m., Student Center, Multipurpose Room

Question: What is Faculty Research Day?
Answer: A great event held at the beginning of the fall semester to spotlight the research and performance achievements of a broad spectrum of individual faculty members at Hofstra.

Fact: Hofstra’s very active and accomplished faculty perform advanced work – research in the broadest sense – across many different disciplines and their work gets recognized by presentation, publication, citation, professional acknowledgments and various awards.

Challenge: Students and even fellow faculty are generally not aware of the range, variety and nature of all the research taking place at the University. It’s fascinating and useful for all of us to learn what we each do as professionals in our respective fields. 

Audience: Primarily students at all levels, especially first-year students, who are the least familiar with 1) the range of disciplines and possibilities at the university, and 2) with the nature and depth of research (in the broadest sense) by individual faculty members, and 3) with the methods of different fields that they might still choose to pursue as a major or a minor. More advanced students will be able to envisage future work in a field and discuss research with faculty they might not know otherwise. Faculty will meet each other in terms of professional activity and forge connections that might be productive professionally in terms of teaching or research, and certainly interesting in terms of what Hofstra offers.

Format: Faculty members present their research accomplishments, past and present, completed and ongoing, in poster form (only) for discussion. Posters can show book covers, images of research topics and activities, exemplary excerpts of analysis, graphs, critical reviews of work, problem statements and responses – in short, anything that conveys the adventure of discovery and methods of the field in a vivid, engaging way to promote discussion! A poster cannot be all-encompassing: faculty can supplement with a laptop slideshow of images, copies of excerpts, offprints, or other take-away examples of the type of research or performance. 

Benefits

Students meet faculty, browse major and minor fields, and get an insight into how a discipline works and what is possible in a field, and how it relates to other possibilities in that discipline and beyond. They also realize what faculty do and start to see how it relates to what is taught in the classroom (which is a very different dynamic than in high school). Students can start to envision the kind of work, or career, they might one day pursue.

First-Year programs (First-Year Connections, Writing Studies & Composition, and Honors College’s Culture & Expression) will discuss different assignments to encourage attendance and involvement by their students.

Faculty presenters engage in selfless self-promotion for the greater good! And meet students and faculty members they might otherwise never meet, creating interest in and respect for their work, and developing an audience for their expertise. 

Departments can put forward their faculty to represent the discipline, recruit potential majors and minors from among undecided first-year students and beyond. 
Also, more advanced students may want to add a major or minor. 

The University elevates its research profile on campus and contributes to Undergraduate Research initiatives that increase student retention by increasing student-faculty contact across the disciplines and engaging them in the possibility of in-depth inquiry into the fundamentals of a discipline. Faculty members present themselves as Hofstra’s greatest educational resource! 

Time and LocationFaculty Research Day will take place in the Student Center Multipurpose Room from 1:00 p.m. until 2:15 p.m. on October 6, 2021.

Presenters will receive a lunch voucher. We can accommodate approximately 75 posters and seek the broadest possible representation of disciplines and departments.

Please discuss with your chairperson; then contact Elfreda Blue, Vice Provost for Graduate and Undergraduate Studies at Elfreda.Blue@hofstra.edu for more information or to sign up for the event. 

Posters should present your research profile, the range of your interests, activities and accomplishments, to a general audience (and can then be used over year after year and updated to show new research). Posters should not be for a professional conference and audience. 

For lists of the participants for the past few years and to see their posters, please go to https://www.hofstra.edu/about/administration/provost/orsp/orsp_faculty_research.html, scroll down and click on the highlighted names to see posters.

See below for a list of suggestions for incorporating the event into your classes, -
as has been done very successfully every year; the turnout has been huge, curious and very eager!

Think about integrating Faculty Research Day into your courses!

Ideas for Class Assignments (see continuation below)

  • Faculty can arrange to meet their students to view and discuss posters together as an on-campus ‘excursion.’
  • Students could be asked to each find a poster, speak to presenter, and then present a 3-minute synopsis to the class, a quick profile of a faculty member and her/his research/discipline.
  • Faculty can discuss methods of approaching an object of interpretation from perspectives of different disciplines, and send students to FRD.
  • Students could write a brief synopsis of a poster of their choice.
  • Students could write up their dialogue with a presenter.
  • Students could read or ask about the moment of discovery in the research? When was the “Eureka” moment?
  • What was biggest obstacle to research? The biggest setback? Challenge? Skeptics?
  • Students could interview a presenter about what was left out of the poster: what decisions had to be made, as in any writing, about what to exclude? What was ‘painful’ to omit for whatever reason (too complicated, long, detailed, personal, controversial, etc.).
  • Students could ask biographical details of the presenter (not too personal) but when did she/he realize an interest in this general area? Which grad school or training? How did she/he find / define their area and topic?
  • Find and rank the top 5 posters in terms of design? How did the presenter decide on that style / format?
  • Identify and define 5 central terms or concepts from different posters.
  • Make a list of unknown words, terms or concepts from posters.
  • Interview other students or faculty about posters that they have studied and found interesting, or about questions they asked.
  • What was the most inspiring poster? The most colorful? The most detailed?
  • How do the posters represent the skills of composition, editing and organizing an argument economically, i.e. in the confines of a limited space?
  • How is a poster like an editorial or a short essay? How is it different?
  • How do visuals change the dynamic of an argument?
  • Can one critique a poster like an essay, esp. when the ‘author’ is present and standing there!?
