Here's an email I got today from the executive of my "CTL Students-Association" at OISE/UT. Our project team in CTL1922 (Hafeeza, Lori and me) is working on video-conferencing as a collaborative learning tool and it's too bad Friday's session--see below--isn't going to be 'cast to an online audience.

I know I'd benefit from being able to follow along from my office on the Island.

Dear Students,

This is a reminder about the faculty and student development workshop that
will take place this Friday, March 12th from 10am - 12pm. in room 11-164.
The workshop this week will include information on the following:

Developing an MRP and thesis study.

The distinction between the MRP, QRP and thesis.

The ethical review process.

Thesis writing and strategies for productive committee work, including a
successful defense.

CTLSA urges all students to attend this workshop. The information that
was given out last Friday at a similar workshop was extremely helpful and
important information on how to make your way successfully through OISE/UT.

Last week at the workshop, a packet of important information and forms was
given out to both faculty and students. The packet contains information
on supervision responsibilites for faculty and students, time lines for
the completion of degrees, and the forms needed to move through the
program. CTLSA has copies of this packet in our office (room 10-269).
Please stop by and pick one up!

Lastly, a message was sent out earlier this week about the Graduate
Students' Association conference fund. To clarify: the forms for this
conference fund can be found in the GSA office (room 8-105) or on their

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the
CTLSA by email (, phone (416-923-6641 ext 2433) or
in person (room 10-269).
