Workshops and Events at Research Hub

Interdisciplinary Research Seminars

Interdisciplinary Research Seminars (IRS) is a new initiative in the Faculty of Education which aims to support graduate students and faculty research and communication across cognate areas. It will be a safe, informal, collaborative space for graduate students and faculty to share their work in progress and get feedback from peers and colleagues. To situate discussions and provide everyone with the opportunity to share their work and get feedback, students and faculty will be encouraged to sign up for a time slot to present throughout a semester. Each participant will have five minutes to present their work and then a group will have about 25 minutes to discuss and provide feedback. Each seminar will have two presenters and will last for one hour. Staring in May, participants will meet twice a month via Zoom platform.

Date:  August 4, 2021
Time:
 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm, PST
Virtual Space:
 ZOOM

You must RSVP to receive the Zoom meeting link and password, which will be emailed to participants before the event.

Virtual Writing Retreat

Come write with us! The Research Hub is expanding beyond the Virtual Writing Retreat Wednesdays afternoon sessions, in order to accommodate different work and life schedules. We hope to reach as many students as possible, and will now offer three retreats each month: one Wednesday afternoon, one weekend and one evening session.

At each virtual writing retreat, you will be able to connect with your peers and write together in a supportive space. You will learn a variety of writing strategies, acquire a clear understanding of academic writing conventions and expectations, and have an opportunity to practice key writing and learning elements within your own work.
