Is There an "R" in Teaching? Is There a "T" in Research?
An academic conference sponsored by Research Advisory Council and Teaching & Learning Advisory Council
University of the Fraser Valley, Abbotsford Campus
May 3, 2011
The theme of this conference is the intersections of research and teaching at the University of the Fraser Valley. As members of a teaching intensive university, instructional and non-instructional faculty, staff and students are often engaged in teaching activities that are propelled by research and/or engaged in research activities that have arisen from teaching experience or inform teaching experience. Questions abound as to how we integrate our multi-faceted responsibilities as educators and researchers.
This conference will address the practical and theoretical responses to the integration of research and teaching in our professional lives.
