TORONTO, Sept. 6 /CNW/ - Who's Ontario's Best Lecturer? TVO asks students
and alumni from the province's colleges and universities to have their say, as
Big Ideas, TVO's televised lecture series, kicks off the third edition of the
Best Lecturer Competition sponsored by TD Meloche Monnex. Nominations will be
accepted at tvo.org from September 4 - October 2, 2007.
A panel of judges will choose 10 finalists from the nominee list to
deliver complete lectures on Big Ideas in March 2008. Viewers will be invited
to grade each of the finalists and cast their vote for Ontario's next Best
Lecturer. The winner's institution receives a $10,000 TD Meloche Monnex
Each year, Big Ideas' Best Lecturer Competition on TVO galvanizes the
post-secondary community and plays an important role in raising awareness
about the province's great educators. "TVO conceived this competition because
we know that higher education matters, and more importantly, our viewers agree
with that," says producer Wodek Szemberg. "The success of the competition is
proof that solid education and an engaging, entertaining learning experience
don't have to be mutually exclusive," he says.
Last year's competition attracted over 250 nominations from students and
alumni across Ontario. Dr. Michael Persinger of Laurentian University took the
title of Ontario's Best Lecturer and the scholarship prize.
