Andy Dicks Named 3M National Teaching Fellow

Congratulations to Andy Dicks, who has been named a 3M National Teaching Fellow. Jointly sponsored by 3M Canada and the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE), the Fellowship is the only pan-Canadian, cross-disciplinary recognition of educational leadership and excellence in university teaching. Dicks is one of just 10 Fellowships selected annually, and joins a prestigious group of educators named as life members of the STLHE and the Council of 3M Teaching Fellows. Dicks will also attend a teaching and learning retreat held in Banff in November. The award has been featured in an Maclean's magazine article.

Geoff Ozin Reflects on the Origins and Future of Nanochemistry in C&EN Perspective

In a Perspective in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly magazine of the American Chemical Society,Prof. Geoff Ozin reflects on the birth and growth of nanochemistry. Ozin has been involved in what came to be known as nanochemistry since 1969, working to unveil the vast potential of nanomaterials. Today, notes Ozin, there is an opportunity to apply nanochemistry to pressing world problems, such as enabling the capture and conversion of CO2 to fuel (the basis of Ozin's recent Connaught Global Challenge Award: UofT Solar Fuels Cluster), as well as big opportunities in next-generation information technology, improved health care, safety from terrorism, and pollution prevention and reduction.
