Undergraduate Research Academy:: Lunch & Learn


Lunch & learn is an informal opportunity for learning and development. This series provides participants the useful, practical, and timely exposure to a variety of topics related to research. We hope that through this gathering, various researchers (student researcher, guest, and faculty) will be able to cultivate a research community that fosters a vibrant research culture at Trinity Western University. These workshops are open to the public, and everyone is encouraged to bring their lunch and learn about topics relevant to research.

The general format for the session (Fall 2021):
