February Updates and Events

Good morning CMAS students! We hope that everyone has been enjoying the transition back to in-person classes. It has been great to see more of your faces on campus. If you are not currently following @cmasmcmaster on Instagram, there are a few exciting updates happening with our society that you should keep in mind moving forward. 

The first event to watch out for, is the second workshop being held on February 28th at 10 am on Zoom, about Character Development. This workshop will be run by Dr. Dilyana Mincheva, with special guest Fab Filippo. This is a great opportunity for students enrolled in CMST 3S03 and CMST 3W03. Fab Filippo is an award-winning, screenwriter, playwright, director, and co-showrunner of the GLAAD award-nominated series SORT OF for CBC and HBOMAX. Are you curious about character development and the creative process that goes on behind the scenes of film and television? Well, come attend this event and learn from industry professionals. If you are interested, email hanlos2@mcmaster.ca to register. 

Another thing we wanted to highlight for this week’s blog post, is a great job opportunity posted on our website for students to apply to. The listings are for Communications Assistants at The School of Earth, Environment, and Society! This is a chance for students to get real-world experience in the areas of transportation accessibility, and accessible design systems for software and app development. There are currently three postings open to students, with the deadline for March 26th, 2022. 

  1. Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 
  2. Design considerations for people with disabilities 
  3. Development of standardized test cases to support accessibility 

We hope that you take some time to explore these postings and hopefully apply for the valuable experience you could obtain in the role. Go check out our “Current Students” page, and then “Job Postings” to learn more! 

Well, that is all we have for you this week for updates on events. We look forward to seeing more of what this semester has to come and hope midterms go great for everyone 🙂
