Every year, Athabasca University graduate students present their research virtually and in person to the academic community. They share their ideas and receive critical reviews of their work in a supportive and yet scholarly environment of colleagues and faculty members.
This year’s theme is “One AU”. As stated in the Athabasca University strategic plan, Imagine, “We are one university. We achieve more together.” We embrace collaboration and connectivity among our diverse individual community members. We are a vibrant and inclusive community that welcomes and celebrates the success of our learners. We provide accessibility to education for everyone to achieve their individual learning goals and to reach their highest potential. Our learners are part of our community, and in turn can enrich their communities.
To highlight the theme of “One AU” we will include the following topics through our keynote speakers, panel discussions, and student presentations:
“As well as being a great venue for networking, it is an opportunity for students new to graduate studies to interact with students farther along their academic journey.”
“What a valuable event for future researchers”
“This conference has been a powerful experience. It has removed fear of getting more assertive and passionate about my focuses and trusting myself to be worthy enough to have a role in the research and presentation of these themes.”
“I would recommend it to all AU grad students. It is really an amazing experience”
“I appreciate every opportunity to physically be present in academia. As a long time AU student, I cannot explain the impact of face to face networking and collegiality on my overall love for the school, it really is an amazing experience.”
