UFV Faculty Micro-Lecture Series 

Tuesday February 21, 2017

Each year the Research Advisory Council (RAC) and the Research Office invites 20 or more faculty researchers to be a part of the continued success of the UFV Micro-Lecture series. Our goal is to provide “snapshots” of the range and depth of our faculty research, as well as highlight the interdisciplinary nature of our work. This engaging fast-paced event also helps to interest students in research and expose faculty to research other than their own.

What it looks like.

Researchers take the stage one after the other for a maximum of two minutes to speak about the exciting findings and implications of their research. The event generally lasts about an hour. Discussion and networking are encouraged afterwards (e.g., if someone is inspired, they can approach faculty afterwards for further discussion).

What it is not.

The Micro-Lecture series is not a forum for faculty to introduce themselves or their department. Rather, it is an opportunity for those in attendance to get “snapshots” of the exciting research being conducted at UFV.

2017 Faculty Micro Lectures:

  • Tuesday, February 21, 2017
  • Location: Abbotsford Campus – Road Runner Cafe
  • Time: 11:30 am to 12:30 pm

Interested in presenting?

If you would like to be a speaker at the Micro Lecture series, contact the RAC representative from your department or Kelly Tracey at the Research Office. Email kelly.tracey@ufv.ca or phone 604-504-7441 ext. 4819.

The deadline to register as a presenter is February 14th, 2017

Faculty Microlecture Series 

Each year the Research Office invites 20 or more faculty researchers to be a part of the continued success of the UFV MicroLecture series. Our goal is to provide “snapshots” of the range and depth of our faculty research, as well as highlight the interdisciplinary nature of our work. This engaging fast-paced event also helps to interest students in research and expose faculty to research other than their own.

What it looks like.

The Road Runner Café and Lounge is transformed into a lecture space with a small riser, podium, and microphone. Researchers take the stage one after the other for a maximum of two minutes to speak about the exciting findings and implications of their research. The event generally lasts about an hour. Discussion and networking are encouraged afterwards (e.g., if someone is inspired, they can approach faculty afterwards for further discussion).

What it is not.

The MicroLecture series is not a forum for faculty to introduce themselves or their department. Rather, it is an opportunity for those in attendance to get “snapshots” of the exciting research being conducted at UFV.

Registration will open for the 2017 Faculty Microlectures in December.
