Re: TVO's Search for the Best Lecturers



TV Ontario is searching once again for Ontario's Best Lecturer.

Over 200 individuals were nominated in last year's competition which included dozens of UofT instructors. (Ten of our faculty members placed in the top 30 and 2 were in the top 10!)

Students and alumni from across the province are being asked to nominate great lecturers from their post-secondary institution to participate in TVO's Best Lecturer Competition. Nominees will be contacted and, once the lecturer has agreed to participate, he or she will be asked to prepare a short video demonstrating their skill. An independent panel of judges will select 10 finalists who will be asked to deliver a complete lecture on TVO's Big Ideas in January 2007.

The winner will be named Ontario's Best Lecturer 2007 and the winning school will receive a $10,000 TD Meloche Monnex scholarship.

To nominate our best instructors, please send an email to TVO describing in 250 words or less) the professor/lecturer and his or her field of study.

Your nomination should indicate what unique and dynamic elements make this lecturer stand out. (Please make sure to include the name and institution of your nominee.)

Submissions should be sent to TVO via email at:BL@tvo.org

The deadline for your response is: February 20, 2006
