Ontario’s Best Lecturer is a contest held by TV Ontario to select Ontario’s best lecturer in a post-secondary institution. Nominations are solicited from students and a number of rounds of selections are made based on video submissions and then a final selection of a top ten, or more recently a top twenty, is made by an expert panel. Those top lectures are profiled and filmed by TVO and aired on their Big Ideas program and then viewers are asked to select Ontario’s Best Lecturer.
Over the years many Brock University lecturers have been nominated and a significant amount have been named as finalists.
