A tour of the simulation spaces in the Medical Education Building and Toldo Health Education Centre is one of the highlights of Campus Technology Day, Thursday, May 16.
Nursing instructors Judy Bornais and Debbie Rickeard will guide participants through the faculty’s Simulation Centre, which offers students authentic simulated learning experiences so they can apply theory to practice and learn to safely care for future patients.
Call it a rap song even a mother could love.
A video by UWindsor computer science student Musawar Khan rapping his heartfelt tribute Here’s to You, Mother has received more than 150,000 views on YouTube, including daily views by his mother.
“I didn’t want to make a video that you can’t show a kid,” says Khan. “These lyrics express my own feelings and my deep appreciation for my mom.”
He wrote the song after the fall semester, when he was feeling lost and missing being near his parents.
There were a few times this past weekend when biology professor Oliver Love was watching presentations by fourth-year science students at Ontario Biology Day and could have sworn he was listening to graduate students.
“That’s how good they were,” he said. “I’ve never seen better presentations by undergrads.”
One agent can drive, another can ride in a car seat. Some agents hunt in a group, others choose to work on a farm. Not all of them are the same. Watch out: they can learn new things!
These agents don't live in your world, but in your computer, Ziad Kobti, director of the UWindsor School of Computer Science will explain in his free public lecture “One agent, two agents, farmer agent, hunter agent: an exploration of artificial life using agent-based modeling,” Wednesday, January 16, at Canada South Science City.
