Video replays Welcoming Celebration

A video by producer Peter Freele of the Centre for Teaching and Learning captures all the excitement of last week’s Welcoming Celebration ushering in the Class of 2016.

The centrepiece of the event was an original song written and performed by UWindsor president Alan Wildeman.

Freele said the format of this year’s celebration marked “a pretty radical departure” from past practice.

Video shares Celebration of Teaching Excellence

Math and statistics professor Rick Caron calls chemistry professor emeritus Roger Thibert one of his favourite people. That is why he was so honoured to be named one of the inaugural recipients of the Roger Thibert Teaching Excellence Award, Monday at the Celebration of Teaching Excellence.

“I thought, if I’m going to get a teaching award, this is the one I want,” Dr. Caron said. “I feel such a kinship with the man for his dedication to his students.”
