Ontario's Best Lecturers

October 3, 2006

  TVOntario, the province’s public broadcaster, will soon announce the finalists in the 2006 “Best Lecturer Challenge” – and 30 of the shortlisted 71 professors are faculty at the University of Toronto. So far, the shortlist has been generated by student nominations – a judging panel including columnists from the Globe & Mail and Maclean’s magazine will chose 10 finalists shortly, and the general public will vote on their televised lectures, a la Canadian Idol.
