The Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta invites proposals from undergraduate students and their mentors to participate in a conference and workshops taking place on April 28th and 29th, 2014 in Camrose, Alberta. The interdisciplinary undergraduate symposium seeks to promote dialogues that interrogate the concept of progress. What is the relevance of progress as a methodological framework? What are some of the philosophical and cultural understandings of progress? What are the relationships between human progress and environmental transformation? How have nations developed concepts of progress throughout history? These are some of the questions the symposium hopes to address
The second day of the conference will consist of a teaching workshop where mentors will share best practices and ideas to encourage undergraduate research, and students will give their own perspective on doing research at the undergraduate level.
