Welcome, the Hub connects all projects

MSP LNC 2011


MSP Learning Network Conference 2011

Poster Instructions

This year, the LNC will include a poster session as a means of generating dialogue, particularly between veteran and new projects. Every MSP project, including RETA projects, will present a single poster at the LNC this year. All posters should include four quadrants:
1) Brief description of your projects definition of "student success."
2) Brief description (or depiction) of your projects research design related to student success.
3) Related to student success, what challenges, including unanticipated ones, has your project overcome, how did you do so, and what challenges remain ahead? What questions does your project have about student success?
4) What are the roles of your projects partners (including STEM faculty, K-12 districts, education faculty, evaluators) related to student success?
A poster session will take place on Monday. You are also encouraged to bring handouts on standard sized paper of a miniature version of your poster, to offer to visitors to your poster. Posters should be set up on Sunday night, or on Monday morning prior to the start of the conference. Information about logistics of the poster session will be posted on MSPnet. You will also be asked to submit your poster on MSPnet after the conference.
All MSP Projects are requested to provide a poster. The posters will be up for viewing from Monday, January 24th at 8:30am to Tuesday, January 25th at noon.
