Safer Spaces Workshop: Understanding Discrimination

McLennan Library Building Room: MS-74, 3459 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 0C9, CA

Designed specifically for the McGill context, this workshop will expose the participant to a number of concepts related to equity and discrimination. During this session, participants will examine ways that unconscious or unintended bias can work its way into everyday interactions; they will analyze culture and identity to understand how bias forms, and how it impacts relationships; and they will work through practical scenarios to develop language, responses, and strategies for addressing inequality and subtle bias in the office and classroom settings.

McIntyre Medical Building Room: 208/9, 3655 promenade Sir William Osler, Montreal, QC, H3G 1Y6, CA

Would you like to improve the quality of your Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs)? Would you like to learn how to use MCQs to assess higher order thinking skills such as application and analysis? If so, join a group of fellow instructors for a workshop about the principles of well-designed multiple-choice questions. During this workshop you will have the opportunity to apply these principles to your own course. Bring existing MCQs exams or course materials for which you would like to develop questions.


 

Departmental rankings & evaluations

Determining departmental rankings

Ideally, the departmental rankings should not be done by one person.  Some units do these by committee; smaller units may want to have a two-person team consisting of the current and past GPD.  The committee members should have substantial experience in reviewing student applications. It makes sense to spend more time on the evaluations of the top-ranked students, knowing that applicants lower down will probably not be considered to go forward.
