Technology requirements for incoming students
Our Foundations Curriculum incorporates technology for the delivery of teaching, learning, and assessment activities. You are required to bring your laptops or tablets to lectures, group activities such as a case-based learning (CBL), seminars, and in-class assessment activities. If you need to purchase a computing device, the University of Toronto Bookstore offers student discounts.
Most technology enabled learning activities will be web-based and do not require special software installation other than Adobe Reader and a word processor (registered U of T students can obtain free copies of Microsoft Office from the U of T Libraries.
Most assessments are computer based, and are conducted both in-class and at home.
