Centre for Teaching and Learning

Reception today to celebrate teaching excellence

Students, faculty, and staff are reminded that the seventh annual Celebration of Teaching Excellence is scheduled for 4 p.m. today—Wednesday, November 14—in the CAW Student Centre's Ambassador Auditorium.

The event, jointly hosted by the Office of the Provost and the Centre for Teaching and Learning, will highlight the achievements and initiatives of faculty who have received international, provincial, and campus-wide awards.

High-definition recording brings Convocation to life

Videotaping Convocation in high-definition provides a much more immersive experience for viewers, says producer Peter Freele of the Centre for Teaching and Learning. The October 13 graduation ceremonies marked the first time the centre’s staff employed high-definition recording for Convocation.

The high-definition process substitutes 1920x1080 pixel resolution for standard 720x480 pixel resolution.

“You can really see the difference in quality,” Freele says. “The new footage puts viewers in the seat as if they were there. It is so much more immediate.”

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.
