Call for Video Submissions: Navigating Interdisciplinarity



The ISGP is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and we want to hear from you!

We’d love to hear from you about your thoughts, opinions, and interdisciplinary experiences in the form of a short and easy-to-film 2-3 minute video. (Deadline TBA)

Questions To Answer In Your Video

Please answer at least one of the following questions.

1. What is the most challenging aspect of interdisciplinary research? How would you ameliorate the difficulties?

 2. In what direction do you see interdisciplinary research moving? How will it be done in the future?

 3. What changes occurred in the ISGP during your time there? Which improvements would you recommend for the future?

Please start your video by providing your name, the title of your research, and what question(s) you are answering. You are also more than welcome to refer to your research when answering these questions. Try to keep your video between 2-3 minutes.

How To Submit Your Video

When finished with your video(s), please upload them to OneDrive. Please note that you must use a OneDrive account linked to your UBC email. If you don’t have a OneDrive account provided by UBC, you can sign up for one here, and then proceed to submit. Once submitted, your video will be included as part of this year’s NEXUS Conference, Navigating Interdisciplinarity.

Be sure to include your first/last name AND the title of your video as the file name (e.g. FirstLastname_Title). If you have problems with OneDrive, please contact us.

Tips on Filming Your Video

Please read the instructions below on how to best record your videos.

Filming can be done on your smartphone or your computer.

Try to avoid filming in front of windows, or else the footage will have white, blown-out backgrounds. Ideally, you will have some light source on your face, be it from a window or desk lamp.

The best tip for having good audio is to avoid any sort of distracting background noise. Try to record in a relatively quiet place – but avoid the echo of an enclosed room as well.

Be sure to look directly into the camera. If you’re holding your phone to film, try to keep your phone as steady as possible.
