Transform How Students Learn
We will transform our teaching methods and experiences of our students. We will achieve this goal by providing more learning opportunities inside and outside classrooms, and by making curricula and learning experiences more international in flavour and scope.
As part of the Leadership, Strategy and Sustainability course, nearly 150 Telfer School of Management students participated in an interactive online simulation called Fishbanks. An innovative way to teach management graduates, through action, the basics of sustainable natural resources management.
Polycycle, an initiative by the Telfer student club Enactus uOttawa, was named the recipient of the $150,000 Community Legacy Award through Aviva Canada’s Community Fund Program. The award targets young social entrepreneurs who have ideas focused on the theme of creating a community legacy.
The uOttawa Top Start-ups initiative recognizes and celebrates the culmination of each annual cycle of teaching, competitions, workshops and hard work that lead to exciting start-ups. Of those start-ups, ZoomMate, co-founded by a Telfer Almuni, was invited to visit Silicon Valley for a learning and business development experience in May 2018.
In September 2017, Telfer students participated in the ‘‘Two Cities, Curious Minds: Graduate Research at Three Universities – National Capital Region Thesis Competition and Poster Session’’ event. Participating students had 10 minutes to present their current research in a creative way. Selected students also had the opportunity to showcase their research projects through a poster competition.
