T-PULSE was established in July 2002 as part of a significant endowment to McGill from Canadian scientist and businessman Richard H. Tomlinson to support the development of more effective teaching methods for university level science students and the dissemination of these techniques to the professoriate.
T-PULSE is involved in several collaborations to enhance all aspects of science teaching and learning in the Faculty of Science and within the University.
T-PULSE is working on improving its workshops, increasing the amount and quality of clicker use in class, providing resources for students and teachers, and many other topics. More information about current and past projects can be found on the Projects page.
Fellowships in University Science Teaching
Each year, the Richard H. Tomlinson Fellowship In University Science Teaching (see page 12 in linked pdf) is awarded. The award is for outstanding graduate and postdoctoral students in the Faculty of Science and other faculties, who will be engaged in research in the teaching of science at the university level. The Fellowship will next be available in 2013.
