Coach students through the process of presenting their research in conference poster sessions so they are prepared on arrival.

  • When students are making their posters, encourage them to focus the content on what they learned, not where they fell short.
  • Additionally, host practice poster sessions so that students are more comfortable during their real presentations.
    • Find or create opportunities for students to present in a smaller, more familiar environment, like their home institutions or regional women-in-computing events.
