Scope and content

Series consists of records relating to various courses taught by Prof Simeon at Queens University, the University of Toronto, and Harvard University (as visiting William Lyon Mackenzie King Professor of Canadian Studies). Includes course syllabi, reading lists, lecture notes, and correspondence with the department and other faculty members.

Series also includes records relating to the development and publishing of a simulation exercise used for POL100/103, Hard Times: Tough Choices: a political decision-making simulation, by Lisa Young and Paul Kopas.

Electronic records in this series include resource material, course syllabi, lecture notes, emails, summaries of student evaluations, and other records relating to course administration, development and teaching activities.

Arrangement note: Files are arranged by university, and then alpha-numerically by course number, and then chronologically within each course. Files do not contain student information, grades, and work. One file of marks and student work (for PADM 801 at Queen’s) has been kept in series 5.
