#ThisIsResearch: Show us your research world

What does research in education look like? We want you to show us!

UBC Faculty of Education students and faculty members from all departments and from the School of Kinesiology are invited to – literally – share their research with the world by taking pictures of their research environment and posting them on Twitter. Contributions will be posted in online and real-life galleries throughout the Year of Research in Education.

The contest is open from October 6th, 2014 to April 30th, 2015.


Seven monthly prizes ($25 gift cards), winners selected by random draw
