McMaster Science Cares with Kylie Luska

Kylie Luska“We have almost made it! Classes, labs, assignments and midterms have now been completed. Only final exams are left now. I know that this still seems like a daunting task but know that we are all still here to support you. Please make sure that you reach out to your instructors, coordinators and teaching assistants to answer any questions that come up while you are studying for your final exams. We have found new ways to communicate with one another and we encourage that you continue to use these during the final exam period.

As I reflect on the changes that have happened over the past month, I have realized that the human interactions that take place on our campus is what makes education such a special journey. For the time being, these interactions have changed format but they remain just as important as ever! You are not alone! We are always here to help because it is what we love to do!”

McMaster Science Cares with David Feinberg

feinberg"I think we all miss something right now. I miss the office. I miss being able to walk around my classroom, sit next to students, type on their laptop, and help them debug code. I don't know if that's something I'll ever get to do again, or if I'll be debugging your code over the internet, wearing a mask, even when in-person classes resume. It's hard. Times are hard. I miss people, I miss campus. But one day this will all end. I'd like to say that when it all ends, we'll get back to normal like nothing ever happened. But things are never going to be the same again, and that's going to be okay too. When we emerge from our caves and see the sunshine again, we'll be brave and build a new world together".

McMaster Science Cares with Rebecca Misiak

rebecca"While I have acquired a ‘paw-some’ furry friend as a colleague, nothing can replace the energy of working on campus alongside all of you.

In times like these, remember you have the McMaster community that are here to help you along the way. Stay connected, stay healthy, and remember to be proud of yourself and what you are accomplishing this term. You are facing an unprecedented challenge and you are all doing amazing!"

McMaster Science Cares with Robin Cameron

robin Cameron"I’ve adjusted to working from home, hopefully you have too. I miss interacting with my students, so it’s been great to see a few of you during my virtual office hours. I look forward to seeing more of you over the next several weeks, where we can discuss lecture material and share ideas for how to manage covid19-associated stress as we all learn how to adapt. On the positive side, pets and family members actually like this pandemic because it means we're home all the time! Take care".
