Welcome to the website and blog of Dr. Daniel Gillis, Assistant Professor and Statistician in the School of Computer Science at the University of Guelph, Co-founder of Farm To Fork, Co-creator of the Ideas Congress (ICON) Transdisciplinary Classroom, and Director of the Physical Science & Engineering Education Research Centre.
Tonight the University of Guelph hosted their annual Student Life Awards. The event honours students, staff, faculty, and community partners who work to make a difference to the student experience at the University of Guelph.
On Friday, whilst perusing the Twitters, I stumbled on this gem of a tweet:
I’m currently sitting in the Halifax airport awaiting my flight to Goose Bay on my way to Rigolet. I’m still rather exhausted from the weekend, but I’m also extremely happy and proud of the students who came together to build solutions to support positive mental health on campus during this weekend’s Guelph Hacks for Mental Health hackathon.
This weekend the University of Guelph is hosting the Guelph Hacks for Mental Health hackathon. As of this moment, university students from across campus (and from a few local high schools) are working in interdisciplinary groups to develop solutions that support positive mental health on campus.
The Physical Science & Engineering Education Research (PSEER) Centre has opened a call for proposals for funding for new research projects in the general field of physical science and engineering education research within the College of Physical & Engineering Science at the University of Guelph.
Registration for the Guelph Hacks for Mental Health event began just over a week ago, and already we’ve filled more than 50 spots with students spanning all 7 colleges!
