Matthew Stork, SSHRC Storyteller
Second year Master's student, Matthew Stork, is one of the 25 finalists in the 2nd annual national SSHRC Storytellers Competition. A variant on the 3 minute thesis theme, the SSHRC Storytellers Competition required graduate students to provide narrative submissions, in no more than 300 words or 3 minutes of multimedia content, on how their SSHRC funded research is making an impact on people's lives.
Matthew's research investigates the role of self-control in achieving social and academic success among first year university students. Matt hopes to develop and implement self-control training programs to enhance student learning, studying, social habits, and academic performance.
"The SSHRC Storytellers Competition provided the perfect opportunity... to share my research with Canada and the rest of the world," he said. Click here to view Matthew's entry into the SSHRC Storytellers Competition.
Matthew receives $3,000 and a chance to become one of the "Final Five Storytellers" during the 2014 Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences in May 2014.
HEIMBECKER MEMORIAL Hockey Game
Thursday April 3, 2014 marked the 14th Annual HEIMBECKER MEMORIAL HOCKEY GAME. Although this annual fundraising event is a wonderful opportunity for friendly competition and cameraderie within the members of the department of Kinesiology, the somber reason it came into being is directly related to Joan Heimbecker's tragic death.
