Ignite Wild Idea about Research

When we are bogged down in our daily work of taking or teaching classes, in the weeds of doing research, writing, marking, sitting in meetings, reading emails….it is easy to lose sight about what excites us about learning and discovery. Do you have budding ideas for research, projects you would love to do, new, perhaps even wild, ideas you would like to ignite—suspending concerns of time and resources? As students and faculty together here at Acadia University, how often do we get a chance, or take the time, to tell other people about the things we are passionate about? We are carving out some time to do just that on campus February 15 at the Axe Lounge (6-7:30). Be a Pecha Kucha storyteller, and share your Wild Ideas About Research with your Acadia community, or just come out and listen, celebrate passion for learning, have some pizza brought to you by Research and Graduate Studies, and if you want, toast a beer. Interested in presenting or need more information about Pecha Kuckas as a storytelling format? Tips for presenting? The PK team is here to help.   Contact Lesley at Lesley.frank@acadiau.ca or Kent at kwilliams67@me.com
