3M National Student Fellowship Award Workshop

AWARDS - Information about various teaching awards and scholarships

Do you embrace your educational experience at UVic and beyond? Would your teachers consider you a community builder or a change agent? Do you have some creative solutions to the challenges of post-secondary education, here at UVic and in Canada as a whole? If so, please consider discussing with a faculty member a nomination for the 3M National Student Fellowship. To be eligible, you must be enrolled full-time. The 3M National Student Fellowship honours up to ten undergraduate and graduate students from across Canada each year. They receive a $5,000 award, registration at the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) conference, as well as accommodation and funds towards travel. While at the conference, they will have the opportunity to develop a cross-Canadian collaborative project with other award winners with the goal of enhancing teaching and learning at the post-secondary level. We invite you and your faculty nominator to attend this meeting on the award criteria and process. An internal UVic process will select the top candidates for submission to this national award. This workshop session is open to potential students and their faculty nominators to provide information about the award criteria and process. For further information please visit the STLHE website at: http://www.stlhe.ca/awards/3m-national-student-fellowship/ or see Frequently Asked Questions at: http://www.stlhe.ca/awards/3m-national-student-fellowship/faq/. More information can be found on the LTC website also: http://www.uvic.ca/learningandteaching/students/scholarships/3mstudentfellowship/index.php

Preparing a Great Syllabus

TT - Teaching Tips

The syllabus is a document that most instructors regard as a formal contract with students outlining basic information about the course and penalties for violating rules of participation. But such a version misses other potential uses, including the opportunity to communicate important and subtle information about you and the course that will engage your students right from the start and will reinforce the impact you should be creating in your first meeting with students. We will discuss this more expanded view of the functions of a syllabus. Please bring with you a copy of your current syllabus.
