Aarthi Ashok, Lecturer from the Department of Biological Sciences at University of Toronto â€“ Scarborough, was selected as the recipient for the Pat Rogers Poster Prize for her poster titled “Engage me with research: Creative course and assignment design in a large Biology course”. The review committee noted “This poster explored opportunities for early year undergraduate students to experience research, and to understand the role of research in the discipline, through creative assessments and differentiated instruction. This is an exciting innovation that could be replicated in any discipline at any institution.” Congratulations Aarthi!
