The Chemical Institute of Canada Toronto Section annual general meeting was held this past June at the University of Toronto. The agenda included a review of activities the section had undertaken since the last AGM as well as the election of the new officers. The event also featured a presentation by U of T chemistry lecturer Effiette Sauer titled, “Teaching chemistry for the future: what do we want our students to remember five years down the road?” Sauer showcased ways to engage students in the classroom and beyond to help them retain important concepts in chemistry. The presentation spurred comments and discussion from the audience.
