Queen's University is delighted to be the host of this year's Canadian Council of Deans of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CCDAHSS) Conference.
Students aren’t the only people who come to Queen’s on exchange.
Waseda University staff members Kunito Koizumi and Takako Ota enrolled last semester in the 12-week English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program offered by the Queen’s School of English (QSoE). The Japanese visitors also volunteered at the Faculty of Arts and Science International Programs Office (IPO).
Three Queen’s researchers and collaborators at seven other Canadian universities have received $16.6 million over five years for research supporting automobile software systems.
Q-CHeM CHRONICLES - Ten years ago, the Walkerton tragedy shocked Canadians into a whole new level of awareness of drinking water quality. In the wake of this event, Stephen Brown’s research group set about developing a new technology for detecting bacteria in water. In a classic story of serendipity, they had already been working on fibre-optic sensors for detecting aromatic compounds as part of a study of impacts of contaminants on fish.
Anne Godlewska (Geography) and Brian Frank (Engineering and Applied Science) are using video-captured lectures this year as part of an ongoing pilot project.
“The willingness of Professors Godlewska and Frank to innovate allows us to investigate the potential use of technology to help students learn and rethink how we engage with students in and outside the classroom,” says Andy Leger, Educational Developer at the Centre for Teaching and Learning, who spearheads the project.
Two Queen’s research projects looking at improved outcomes for joint surgery have received National Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) funding. James Stewart and Randy Ellis (School of Computing) each received close to $300,000 over the next three years.
Doctoral student Erin Tolley is the first Queen’s student to have been named a Trudeau Scholar. The Trudeau Scholarships are among the most coveted awards of their kind in Canada. They reward excellence and provide doctoral students with the best conditions to ground their work in the real world. The Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation was created in 2001 and gives out 15 awards each year to scholars in various fields.
