Douglas College Research Day is an annual event that occurs in April where students showcase their hard work and discoveries, from an individual or group research project.
This year, 2021, we moved the event online and highlighted student research projects during the week of May 3-7.
Students were invited to create interactive presentations to display their research and record a short presentation with a member of the Student Life team to share their findings. These interviews were featured during Research Week, here on the website and on our Facebook and Instagram accounts.
2021 features projects from Psychology, Sport Science, Criminology, Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies, Therapeutic Recreation and Psychiatric Nursing – something for everyone!
Student research work from this event, as well as other areas of the College, can be found in the DOOR (Douglas Open Repository) on the Library website.
