As the result of major changes in the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Journalism program, we will no longer be regularly producing The Kwantlen Chronicle in print or online. (Detailed information about our new program is available here.) This site, and the student work it contains, will be archived and maintained. We will also use this site, occasionally, for special publications produced as part of our students’ coursework.
Ann McBurnie, Operations Manager in the Library, is conducting an action research project entitled “Research Assistants at Kwantlen Polytechnic University: Positioning and Training for Success” in partial fulfillment of the requirements of the Master of Arts in Leadership from Royal Roads University.
McBurnie is recruiting both Kwantlen faculty members who employ research assistants, either currently or within the past three years, for a focus group in November; and any Kwantlen research assistants (RAs), either currently or having worked as an RA in the past three years for a late-October small focus group.
Call McBurnie at 604-576-0904 if you are interested.
First-year journalism students are covering the Olympic Torch Run, as it moves through Vancouver today (Thursday). This is the first of what will be several slideshows showing the run and the students’ work.
Note: the slideshows are actually appearing here.
On Thursday, Feb. 11, first-year journalism students will be following the Winter Olympic torch run as it enters Vancouver, from Burnaby, and makes its way across the city. The slideshow of their work will be updated throughout the day, beginning in the early afternoon.
As the countdown for the Winter Olympics went from weeks to days, Kwantlen journalism students spent Wednesday on the streets of Vancouver, capturing images of the city. They went out to explore four different themes: display, excitement, disruption and dissent. The results — more than 80 photos — are presented in the following four slideshows.
Charles Quist-Adadeâ€™s Sociology 1125 students and the Ghanaian-Canadian Association of B.C. will extend a helping hand to Haiti with a fund-raiser on Friday, Jan. 22, from 5:30-9:30 p.m.
The event will feature poetry by Scruffmouth and refreshments will be provided. Donations are tax deductible. It will be held on the Surrey campus in the Fir Building, Room D128.
The annual Halloween costume contest, a project of Kwantlen’s Design & Communications division, took over the rotunda of the Richmond campus three days before Halloween officially hit, filling the space with explorers in canoes, Pantone swatches, debonair blondes and a litre or two of fake blood.
We have two looks at the proceedings: a video by Abby Wiseman and a slideshow by Kyle Vinoly.
What could be better than saving money? Finding the entertainment, recreation and clothing options that leave you satisfied and the bank account a little less depleted? The latest issue of the Chronicle, on newsracks now, offers plenty of options for staying entertained on a typical student budget.
Reporter Justin Langille wanted to know how Kwantlen students feel about how they’ll get around the city in February when the Winter Olympics hit Vancouver. Here’s an audio slideshow that shows what some of them are thinking and planning:
