All courses for every first-year Science student will be delivered online this fall. A limited number of students in their second, third and fourth years will return to campus for part of the semester.
As part of a multi-institutional initiative, I am also investigating the impact of the newly implemented Fall Break on student mental health. I have received funding from the Forward With Integrity Initiative at McMaster University to create an online strategy to disseminate information about community-engaged education for Instructors on McMaster campus and beyond. I am a Research Fellow at the McMaster Institute for Innovation and Excellence in Teaching and Learning (MIIETL) and am in current collaboration with this institute to investigate the impact of community-engaged education on academic engagement and development in undergraduate students.
