Near the end of the each semester in his Classical Mythology (CLAS*2000) class, Professor John Walsh asks his students to nominate people on campus who have made a difference in their lives. He honours these 'legends' with a celebration in class; including prizes, photo ops and lots of cheering.
Joanne O’Meara consistently receives accolades from her students for her enthusiasm and passion for teaching, and for her ability to make physics accessible and engaging. Her pioneering work in using active-learning techniques in her classes and her willingness to explore and share new teaching ideas have revolutionized the teaching of Physics at Guelph and across Canada.
The Physics department has partnered with the Guelph Civic Museum to offer science activities to over 700 grade 6-8 students in honour of STEM week!
