S‌tudent Research Day 2018

Students brought their learning to life on Thursday, April 5 at the annual Student Research Day event hosted by the Research, Engagement and Graduate Studies department.

The event included a two-minute micro-lecture challenge, where students shared the results of their research in a fast-pace format, followed by a poster fair and research awards.

Asking questions, gathering and analysing data, and drawing conclusions gives students the skills to dig for answers, make connections to their learning, and be autonomous.  Research is often something undergraduates learn about, but don’t regularly get to participate in doing. At UFV, a relatively high number of research opportunities and support exist for undergraduate students.

Engagement in research in the undergraduate years is not only helpful for students who wish to pursue graduate studies. Experience conducting and disseminating research can help students obtain awards, scholarships, and skills for the work force.
