Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

MTSC 6000G - Graduate Seminar in Science Communication I (non-credit)

The goal of this course is to assist students in developing the skills necessary to effectively communicate technical information to a diverse scientific audience. Seminars by second-year students also expose students to the range of research carried out within the program. A series of oral and written exercises are each followed by constructive review by both peers and faculty. Early in the course, speaking exercises include a 10-minute presentation to the class on a basic topic in the student’s discipline. Towards the end of the course, students make a 25-minute presentation on a journal article. Writing exercises include abstracts of seminars by second-year students and a brief discussion of a journal article. Evaluation focuses on clarity, precision and the care with which the audience is guided to the presenter’s objective. The student will receive a grade of either pass or fail.
