What Our Faculty Are Up To
Instructors of a new self-paced version of Introduction to Computer Programming found that three weeks before the end of classes, about half of the students enrolled were halfway through the course and none had accelerated ahead to finish the course early.
“It’s interesting because we’ve had a couple of comments that a lack of deadlines has meant that they had trouble focusing on the material because they didn’t have a deadline looming,” said Paul Gries, an associate professor, teaching stream of computer science at the University of Toronto.
Two distinguished fields of study at the University of Toronto are joining together into one school, reinforcing the university’s position as a leader in global affairs and public policy – areas that in today’s changing geopolitical realities increasingly see overlap and share an agenda.
U of T’s School of Public Policy & Governance and the Munk School of Global Affairs will be merging into the newly named Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy.
Undergraduate students get rare chance to work with groundbreaking genetic engineering technique CRISPR
It’s a groundbreaking genetic engineering technique normally reserved for research labs, but this year more than 40 undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts & Science's human biology program had a chance to work hands-on with CRISPR, a research tool helping to revolutionize the field of molecular biology.
Often described as a word processor for DNA, CRISPR allows scientists to modify the genetic makeup of cells by adding, removing or changing sections of DNA – think cut and paste editing of an organism’s genetic sequence.
