UFV has been challenged by Vancouver Island University to help represent Canada in the #URExchange Twitter Takeover next Thursday, November 12 (9am-2pm PST). Sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) based out of Washington D.C., the ‘takeover’ will be a lively celebration of the creativity, ingenuity, and research excellence of undergraduate students across the globe.
How UFV students can participate:
On Thursday, Nov. 12 use the hashtags #URExchange, #URExchangeTRUENORTH, and #UFVresearch to tweet –
- about a current or past research project / experience
- a special memory (e.g., studying abroad, presenting at a conference)
- a message to your research mentor(s)
- visual content related to your research – a video, photo, article, poster, etc.
If you don’t have Twitter, feel free to submit content to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 11 so the Research Office may tweet on your behalf. (270 characters or less, images and links welcome, please include your name/major as you would like them displayed.)
It will be a real tweet to celebrate your research!
