TVO Best Lecturer Competition

September 12, 2008 - Campus Bulletin

Members of the University community are invited to nominate their favourite professor for the 2009 TVO's Big Ideas Best Lecturer Competition.

The competition celebrates the most engaging lecturers at Ontario's universities and colleges and recognizes those whose love of learning has helped to stimulate imaginations, open eyes and push boundaries.

The winning school is awarded a $10,000 TD Insurance Meloche Monnex scholarship.

Submissions are reviewed by a panel of judges who choose the top 10 finalists. Lectures by the 10 finalists will air on TVO's Big Ideas beginning in February 2009, and the winning lecturer will be chosen by viewers and an independent jury.

By nominating someone, you will automatically be entered into a contest to win one of two iPod touch devices.

Nominations can be made by sending e-mails to with the subject line "BL 2009 Nomination." The submission should include the full name of the professor, the university or college and the department the nominee teaches in and 50 to 100 words saying why the professor should be named Best Lecturer. The nominator's full name, e-mail address and telephone number should also be included.

Nominations are being accepted until Oct. 12.
