Third Annual Contract Faculty Colloquium –
Call for Proposals

The UBC Faculty Association Contract Faculty Committee, in partnership with UBC Library, presents the Third Annual Contract Faculty Colloquium, which provides contract faculty an opportunity to share with and learn from their contract faculty colleagues across campus in a genial, relaxed atmosphere.

Date: Thursday, March 23, 2017
Time: 11:30 am – 4:30 pm
Location: Lillooet Room, I.K. Barber Learning Commons

We invite proposals for presentations on your field-specific research, pedagogical research or pedagogical practice. We’re looking for very brief (10 minute) talks or poster presentations. This is an ideal opportunity to rehearse for an upcoming conference, recap something you recently presented, share an innovative idea and perhaps find a collaborator or research partner. If you’re interested in presenting, please send a very brief proposal to Dr. S. Bose (s.bose@ubc.ca) (3 points, 100 words max.) Team proposals are welcome. We’re really looking forward to receiving your proposal!
