As the COVID-19 pandemic became an unavoidable reality in the spring of 2020, approaches to teaching and learning were forced to shift dramatically. In recognition of their tireless work in facilitating the transition to online/distance education, Professors Ellen Zweibel and Craig Forcese have been named as recipients of two newly-established awards for innovation and leadership.
A cast of 15 actor-singers were featured in the first-ever virtual Musical presented by FTX Productions. The “DIY” musical is a medley of songs from various musicals. Each individual member had to perform and film themselves from the safety of their own home. Dispersed all over Canada, working in different time zones, they were able to assemble for their audience an hour filled with joy, dance and singing.
The award features 30 outstanding young people, nominated by their community and selected by a committee of peers, for their commendable work in making the world a more just, fair, and sustainable place for all.
