Undergraduate Research Academy:: Lunch And Learn

Introduction

Lunch and learn is an informal opportunity for learning and development. We hope that through this gathering, various researchers (student researcher, guest, and faculty) will cultivate the research community and foster a vibrant research culture at FNAS, TWU. Everyone is encouraged to bring their lunch and learn about topics relevant to their research.

  • Thursday, 12:00 - 13:00, location (see table below)
  • Tentative formats
    • student researcher's presentation (10 min) + topic of the day (~40 min) OR
    • present by presenter(s) OR
    • facilitate by facilitator(s)

For question contact: Dr. Herbert H. Tsang
