Oct. 19 - CAP Lecture: UBCO Physics is excited to announce the launch of the 2018 CAP Undergraduate Lecture Tour, which features excellent presentations on a variety of modern topics in physics.

We are hoping to host a distinguished physicist here at UBC Okanagan to give a presentation on some aspect of current physics research. The presentation will be designed for an audience of undergraduate physics students. We want you to play a major role is selecting the speaker that will come to the Okanagan!

To view the list of speakers and topics, visit the following website. There is a list of 29 potential speakrs!

If you're interested in helping us select the speaker that will be most appealing to you, please review the list of potential speakers and identify those that you'd be interested in seeing. Email me your preferred list of speakers by Tuesday, Oct. 31

The 2018 Lecture Tour schedules will be confirmed by the end of November, and lectures may take place any time during term 2 of the 2017/2018 academic year.

Presentation rubric: Everyone will participate in grading the class presentations.

Here are links to the grading rubric and the grading form.

There are six categories and each presenter will be assigned a mark out of 10 for each category. If two presenters are working together, they will receive the same marks for the first four categories, but will receive individual marks for the final two.

Everyone will get a mark out of 90 for their presentation. Eight of the remaining 10 marks will be rewarded based on attendence.

You are required to email me your presentation slides by noon on the day of your presentation. If you meet this deadline, you will receive 2 marks. Acceptable formats are pdf, ppt, pptx, and odp.
