VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

Research and Creative Activity Symposium - April 17th, 2020

VIU Research & Creative Activity Symposium

Friday April 17th, 2020

VIU’s Scholarship, Research and Creative Activity Office is sponsoring a one-day Research and Creative Activity Symposium on Friday April 17, 2020. The submission deadline is Friday March 20th, 2019 and can be completed online.

VIU Faculty and Staff from across the institution are invited to participate in this event in order to present and discuss the work they are involved in, but rarely have opportunity to share with each other, and the broader community. Faculty and Staff are encouraged to mobilize their research and creative activity by delivering a 15 minute oral presentation, followed by 5 minutes for feedback and discussion. This symposium is not blind peer-reviewed, but is an opportunity to discuss ongoing research and creative activity in a supportive and moderated academic environment. Snacks and beverages will be provided throughout the day.

Presentations will be scheduled on the Nanaimo campus and presenters from Cowichan and Powell River Campuses will be able to present from their home campus via Zoom, if they prefer. If you would like to mobilize your knowledge in a format other than an oral presentation, contact to discuss your ideas, local 2984.

This call is intended to be inclusive of research and creative activity across all disciplines and contexts in order to gain insight into current and developing research taking place within the VIU regions. We want to have the opportunity to hear and discuss work that has been completed, work in progress, and projects being developed for the future.

Sessions will be organized around the seven themes in VIU’s Strategic Plan: Scholarship, Research and Creative Activity 2017 - 2022, including:

  • Health, Resilience and Well-Being
  • Integrated Sciences, Technology and Environment
  • Resilience of Island, Coastal and Rural Regions
  • Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Social Change
  • Cultural, Heritage and Creative Expression
  • Equity, Diversity and Social Justice
  • Teaching and Learning

Questions about the symposium can be directed to Tanis Dagert, Community Liaison and Knowledge Mobilization Officer,  local 2984.
