Daily News Fall 2021 updates for students: What we know and what we’re working towards


McMaster University will continue to host undergraduate academic activities remotely for the Spring/Summer/Intersession term with only a few exceptions for courses that need student access to specialized equipment.

Showcase Extraordinary Teaching In Science

Good newsThe Faculty of Science and the MacPherson Institute are looking to celebrate some of the extraordinary teaching and learning experiences that faculty, instructors, staff and students have delivered over the past year.

An anthology of short narratives and video interviews will be compiled to showcase best practices.

Faculty, instructors and staff can submit their own short story (150-250 words) or nominate a colleague or friend who has a story worth sharing broadly across the Faculty. Stories can showcase innovations in teaching and learning, community building and overcoming challenges, Stories can also be shared on a Zoom call which will then be edited into a video clip for the anthology.

Submissions will be open until May 7, with the anthology published and distributed during the Faculty of Science's virtual retreat on May 20. This is not a competition so all submitted stories will be celebrated and included in the anthology.
