From: Avi Hyman, ACT Director Re: ACT Projects & Development Manager
I am pleased to tell you that Peter Cheung has been appointed to the new position of Manager, Projects & Development, within the Academic & Collaborative Technologies Group in I+TS.
Peter has been working at UofT for a number of years, most recently as Special Projects Coordinator within ACT, where he coordinated such projects as the UofT Mobile App and the Remark Test Form Scanning service. He has also been an active participant in other projects such as the Collaborate Webinar roll-out, the investigation of computer-based exam solutions, and the investigation of portfolio-wide trouble ticket management solutions.
Prior to joining the ACT team, Peter served in a technology project coordination role at the Faculty of Medicine, primarily involving the development and deployment of administrative systems that supported the academic mission (such as that Faculty’s electronic CV project). Before that, Peter was a web applications developer at OISE.
Peter’s undergraduate education includes a degree in microbiology and immunology for UWO, an Applied Information Technology diploma from Toronto’s ITI, and a Master’s degree from UofT’s Faculty of Information (Peter served as a virtual reference librarian for the Toronto Public Library before working at UofT). He is an active member in a number of community groups and a certified pilot.
Please join me in welcoming Peter to this new role.
