Universities prioritize students’ personal satisfaction and positive experiences over their education.

I am fortunate to be in my 15th year of a full-time job at a Canadian university. Over this time, as a faculty member, senator, department chair and associate dean, I have watched a steady, slow and curious transition in the use of language at university away from the word “education” in favour ...

Le retour aux normes en vigueur avant la pandémie sera une entreprise délicate.

Depuis mars 2020, les professeurs ont considérablement modifié leur façon d’enseigner, repensé les évaluations, trouvé de nouveaux moyens de créer un sentiment d’appartenance et offert aux étudiants de nouvelles formes d’accessibilité, entre autres choses. Pendant ce temps, les ét...

Strategic investments are needed to support all stakeholders in the transition to research equity.

Canadian science could benefit enormously if all research articles in the country were made freely available to anyone immediately upon publication. But there are significant barriers that need to be overcome to achieve this. Last year, 30 per cent of Canadian research was published as paid open ...

By targeting certain behaviours, we can significantly reduce the environmental impact of research without compromising quality.

From global warming to biodiversity loss, the environmental crisis is a critical issue for the Canadian and international research communities, which provide invaluable insight into environmental problems and offer solutions. The fact that research is largely publicly funded means that it must be...

The Black Hole

The Black Hole
BY JONATHAN THON | August 16 2019

Universities employ a very small fraction of all career scientists and serve mainly as a stepping stone to the next career phase rather than a final destination.

I had a couple people reach out to me this week for perspective on their intended career transitions from academia. Their concerns were ones I’ve heard repeated often and are worth addressing more generally here:
  1. “Am I a failure for wanting to leave academia?”

Three academics reflect on how they got on the tenure track.

You’ve almost made it: the courses, comps, proposal are all under your belt. You’re polishing your dissertation and practicing your defence. You’re exhausted and excited. It’s a time for celebration. A time for looking back at what you have accomplished and for looking forward into the unkno...

No one expects you to become an online teaching guru overnight. The best any of us can do is just get through the rest of the semester by focusing on student learning.

Many universities, colleges and schools have suspended in-person courses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As public health officials try to flatten the curve of the outbreak, these suspensions are a display of solidarity to reduce the spread of the virus and allow health-care workers and instit...

Online teaching requires learning new skills, as well as acknowledging the types of audiences they are attempting to engage.

As academia has been forced to move online, universities and academics have scrambled to deliver conference presentations, lectures, meetings, and everything else virtually. This creates a lot of anxiety for professors who are used to having live audiences and in-person feedback. Our recent experien...
