Attention (Undergraduate) Students!
The Faculty of Nursing within the University of Alberta seeks to create and sustain a culture of undergraduate research through the Undergraduate Summer Student Summer Series: Launchpad to Research, a two-hour seminar series held weekly over eight weeks. The Faculty of Nursing opens this event to all undergraduate students engaged in research across all health-related disciplines. The event raises students’ awareness of and interest in research through a rich breadth of speakers, including CRCs, tenure-track researchers, PhD students, and PDFs who engage in a broad range of research and methods. Students are supported in developing the tools for research by ensuring ongoing opportunity for open discussion and increased awareness of essential research components and opportunities. Student engagement in research is fostered through networking, learning necessary research skills, and participation in the Student Poster Presentation. Students learn to disseminate and celebrate their research as they are guided through the processes of writing an abstract, and then creating a poster which they then present. The Poster Presentation is open to the Faculty of Nursing and its ECHA neighbours.
Dates: Wednesdays, June 8 – July 27, 2016
Time: 12:00 – 2:00 p.m.
Registration for this program will open on May 15, 2016 and will close on May 29, 2016. Cost for registration is $50/person and includes lunch each week. NOTE: Registration will be waved for recipients of the FoN Undergraduate Student Summer Research Award.
