VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

Ways to present at CREATE

Posters

These showcase knowledge sharing through predominantly visual means and include Research Posters, Infographics, and TwitterPosters (yes, these are a thing and they are awesome).


10-minute presentations

These allow students to present their projects in 10 minutes.  Digital slides (think PowerPoint) are used to enhance the presentation.


10-minute performances

These allow students to showcase a 10-minute performance. These can include spoken word, song, music, dance, or drama.


3-minute SLAM

These allow students to present their projects in 3 minutes using very accessible language. Similar to the idea of an 'elevator pitch'. The point is to describe the What, Why, and How in a short, understandable way. 


Photography

New for 2021! This event will exhibit photos of research and creative activity captured by VIU students.


Rant-like-Rick

"Everyone should rant. Ranting not only makes you feel better but occasionally, as my mother proved to me many times, you might get results—justice, satisfaction or a fudge stick."

2 minutes. Make a point. Intelligently.


SHORTS

These are three minute short documentaries that capture some aspect of a project/paper/subject you learned about this last year here at VIU.
