new itemMcMaster Study - Opening the Box: Rethinking Classrooms - Deadline Extended

  • Tell us your thoughts on McMaster’s classrooms for a chance to win great prizes! Even though students are the overwhelming majority of classroom users, they rarely get a say in how they are designed. We want to learn from you, the students, about how McMaster’s current classrooms are used, what features of classrooms help you learn, and what features of classrooms are obstacles to learning. The survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete, and you can enter your email address after you complete the survey for a chance to win one of several great prizes! The survey will be available until 11:59:59PM on 12 February 2016. For more information and to participate, go to:

    This study has been reviewed and cleared by the McMaster Research Ethics Board as 2013-146. If you any have concerns or questions about your rights as a participant or about the way the study is being conducted you can contact:

Avenue Mail Now Is Able to Accept Incoming Email

  • Avenue Mail, which was previously configured to receive internal Avenue Mail, can now receive external e-mail as well. This change has been worked on for the last year and required input from multiple parties on and off campus. As a reminder you should choose to use your official McMaster e-mail for all correspondence with the University.
