KI professor’s new research: pathways for negative emissions technology in Canada. Dr. Vanessa Schweizer & Prof. Eric Croiset (Chemical Engineering) co-lead a 5-year initiative announced by Environment and Climate Change Canada on November 23.

KI professor Mathieu Feagan collaborates to answer the question: How do we plan our cities in an equitable and just way for a future affected by the massive upheavals of climate change?

Bailey Gardien and her collaborators participated in Future City Builders, an immersive Evergreen initiative, to create and launch innovative solutions to urban challenges. 

After four months of Virtual Design Thinking labs, networking, workshops, and mentorship, they pitched their idea to help students who are financially limited to take up a cost-friendly and healthier alternative to traditional transportation, and they were awarded $5,000 in seed funding.

Fulbright Scholar visits KI

Mary Stewart, an author, visual artist, retired university professor, and expert in creativity and teaching creative thinking, is visiting the Department of Knowledge Integration as a Fulbright Scholar for 2 months this fall.  

Luna Kawano, BKI'22 is the recipient of the Academic Achievement Award for the Bachelor of Knowledge Integration (BKI) graduating class of 2022 in recognition of academic excellence.

Here's what Luna said:

“To be completely honest, I was not expecting to receive this award. Although I have been heavily involved on and beyond campus, I have not been super involved academically. I did not realize I had a Dean’s Honours Average until I got the email suggesting I apply. I guess I bring this up because it connects to the greatest lesson I learned in KI – learning is FUN.

KI professor Rob Gorbet recently had some interesting experiences during his time in New Brunswick:

Project LEO

Project LEO is helping students at Riverview High School in New Brunswick to combine science, technology, and art through a series of suspended interactive light sculptures for the atrium of their school. 

We are pleased to announce that Katie Plaisance was selected as the University of Waterloo’s recipient of the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA) Teaching Excellence Award for 2022.

This award "recognizes educators who excel at unlocking the potential of Ontario’s young people. Successfully engaging individuals in the learning experience depends on an instructor's ability to spark students' curiosity and desire to learn."

The Journal of Integrative Research & Reflection (JIRR) is a student-run, peer-reviewed undergraduate academic journal.
