First students enter Centre for Engineering Innovation

The promise of the Centre for Engineering Innovation definitely helped to convince Sarah Kwiatkowski to study at the University of Windsor. Now the promise is being fulfilled for the second-year electrical engineering major.

“I am so excited about having everything in one place—classes, labs, professors’ offices,” she says. “This building played a huge role in my decision to come here.”

Researchers seeking participants for study into effective teaching

Creating course curricula and teaching methods that effectively promote student learning can be a challenging task for higher education instructors.

A research study funded by the University of Windsor Centred on Learning Innovation Fund is developing a Checklist for Evaluating Course Curriculum and Teaching. This checklist will describe aspects of course curricula associated with effective learning in higher education courses. It will also provide a self-evaluation tool for new and experienced instructors who are reviewing current courses or planning new courses.
