ADPR Associate Professor Beth Avery Foster’s March 10, 2016 Mic/Nite presentation was titled, “Exploring the effects of visual appeals in an HPV prevention campaign: An eye-tracking study.” A video of Foster’s presentation will be available soon at https://utworks.tennessee.edu/micnite/Pages/results.aspx?sp=104.
Twice a year the UT Provost’s office hosts Mic/Nite. The Pecha-Kucha format is a simple lecture format where presenters show and discuss 20 images for 20 seconds each. The objective is to communicate in a simple, quick format the research work being done by UT faculty to foster a deeper appreciation for that work and to build connections for greater intellectual interaction.
The event draws a large crowd to the Relix Variety Theatre in Knoxville and generates excitement and discussion among faculty across campus. Past CCI Mic/Nite presenters include: Suzie Allard (IS), Eric Haley (ADPR), Mark Harmon (JEM), Barb Kaye (JEM), Virginia Kupritz (CS), Michael Palenchar (ADPR), Vandana Singh (IS), Peiling Wang (IS), and Courtney Wright (CS).
