A treasure trove of knowledge in 120 seconds: faculty microlectures — Feb 9 

What if you could take an entire course in two minutes? Sound impossible? Maybe. But you’d be surprised how much you can learn in just 120 seconds, especially when an expert is sharing their knowledge. 

UFV faculty presenters will take the stage at the annual faculty microlectures for a maximum of two minutes each to speak about the findings and implications of their research. 

Learn about two dozen new topics in under an hour. 

Come visit Abby A219 (former Spirit Bear Café) in Building A on the Abbotsford campus to hear the lectures on Thurs, February 9, 11:30 am-1230 pm. 

Researchers take the stage one after the other, in rapid succession, for two minutes each to speak about the exciting findings and implications of their research. The event lasts about an hour, with presenters and audience members encouraged to stick around for discussion and networking afterward at the research publication celebration in nearby Abby A225 (boardroom) Light refreshments will be provided.
