In order to showcase the research and talent of UTSC students, we have introduced a new modified online version of the Forum consisting of electronic posters and live/synchronous virtual presentation followed with Q&A by the judges.
The UTSC Library and the Office of the Vice-Principal Research and Innovation proudly sponsor the Undergraduate Research Poster Forum to showcase the significant research contributions of talented UTSC undergraduates. The forum is a competitive, adjudicated event that promotes intellectual exchange and gives students an opportunity to develop presentation skills by disseminating new research and creative activities both to academic communities and non-specialists. The forum provides the perfect opportunity for students interested in becoming involved in research to learn more about what other students have already done.

Preparing a business pitch and developing a business idea requires you to have data on your target market. You need data to inform decisions on your business plan, data on your competitors, and if you want to be innovative in your industry you need data to tell you a story on performance and opportunity. Data literacy for entrepreneurs is essential. This session will help you identify your data needs, find relevant data using specialized library resources, and evaluate and synthesize data using critical thinking.
- You will describe types of data in order to understand why you need data to inform your business idea.
- You will identify your information need and find the data that best addresses your startup research question.
- You will use logical judgment and critical thinking to synthesize and analyze data from multiple sources.
Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm
