Federal budget earmarks $50 million for teaching digital literacy: U of T engineering offers several coding programs for youth in the city
The 2017 federal budget earmarks $50 million over two years for teaching initiatives in coding and digital literacy across the country. The funds could help coding workshops for youth in the city that are organized by U of T's Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering.
Aimed at providing both students and teachers with new tools to integrate programming, robotics and digital literacy into their classrooms, these workshops reach hundreds each year.
Students at U of T Scarborough now have a new program they can consider – a minor in health humanities – which will be the first of its kind in Canada. This interdisciplinary field explores health, illness and disability through the arts and humanities.
As Toronto continues to grow, urban agriculture may play a more significant role for people seeking alternative sources of nutritious and affordable food, U of T researcher Colleen Hammelman says.
Hammelman has examined urban agriculture in such cities as Medellín, Colombia, and Washington, D.C. She explored the role of urban agriculture in the GTA and social justice at a one-day conference organized at U of T Scarborough this month.

“The cool thing about the aerospace program at U of T is that it is off campus. It was like a small community in itself, where you have the opportunity to interact with a very diverse group of people studying diverse initiatives.”

ONE UNIVERSITY, THREE CAMPUSES
The college system
All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the downtown Toronto (St. George) campus are affiliated with one of seven colleges. These colleges have deep roots in the history of the University of Toronto; the college system dates back to the earliest days of the university and remains one of its distinctive features. The colleges are a home base for their students and provide the advantages of a closer-knit community experience within a large research university.
