*SEMINAR ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS:

Students are responsible for keeping record of their seminar attendance/participation including: dd/mm/yyyy, title pf seminar and speaker(s).

NEW: To meet their CIDE Program Requirements students are required to attend and participate in a minimum of 5 CIDE seminars. Students must be present in person at a minimum of 4 CIDE seminars. After December 2013, for their 5th seminar requirement, students may exercise one of the three following options:

  1. Attending/participating in person
  2. Attending/participating in a live webcast seminar virtually through Adobe Connect or Skype
  3. Visiting the CIDEC website, choosing one CIDE seminar video to watch and then writing a reflective summary of 500 words on it. If you choose this option, please see the reflective summary guidelines below or contact the CIDEC administrator at cidec.oise@utoronto.ca.

Reflective Summary Guidelines:

The goal of the reflective summary paper (500 words) is for the student to demonstrate their understanding of the main ideas and concepts covered in the seminar.  Students must be able to connect the material discussed with other ideas and experiences, which can include their own research, course work, journal articles, etc. The recommended ways to make connections in this paper are by:

1.    Connecting with your own examples, with specific reference to the seminar -- which can be from research, mass media, etc. or  from personal experience (don't simply reproduce the content of the seminar)

2.    Comparing with other similar concepts or phenomena

3.    Thinking further about implications of the presentation/seminar content

4.    Including a brief comment about whether or not you would recommend this seminar to others and why

We want to see that students have given thought to the material and not just provided a summary of the seminar content. Please submit your reflective summary, the date you accessed the video online, the seminar title and name of presenter to cidec.oise@utoronto.ca. If you are interested in having this summary considered for inclusion in the CIDE Newsletter please contact Caroline (Carly) Manion at carly.manion@utoronto.ca.
