College work on display

The presentations are open to the public and run from Nov. 3 to 5 at the Vernon campus.

Okanagan College will host presentations and displays intended to showcase some of the scholarly and creative work of faculty and staff.

The presentations are open to the public and run from Nov. 3 to 5 at the Vernon campus.

“The concept is to shed some light on the tremendous creative work and research of some of our faculty and staff,” said Ross Tyner, the director of library services.

While the presentations range from the esoteric to the more popular, the overarching purpose is to expose people to the breadth of research and writing that is undertaken at the college.

“Some of the people presenting will be familiar to a good portion of the public through their books or work in the community,” said Tyner.

“Others will be known to people who are familiar with their field, in areas such as mathematics, business research, earth and environmental science and computer science.”

Most of the sessions are organized around the lunch-hour to allow public attendance. Presentations are free and attendees are invited to bring their lunch.
