Brock recognizes profs for outstanding teaching at Convocation
Published on May 30 2012
First-rate teaching and mentoring that goes above and beyond the norm is the cornerstone of Brock’s reputation for excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. As such, at this year’s Spring Convocation taking place from June 5 to 9, the University will pay tribute to six faculty members for their exceptional contributions to teaching.
“The recipients of these awards for teaching excellence provide our students with a top-notch education experience,” says Murray Knuttila, Provost and Vice-President, Academic. “The quality of teaching, supportive learning environment and classroom innovation that these outstanding faculty provide for our students helps to foster a culture of pervasive research and creative activity at our University.”
The Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching is awarded to individuals chosen by selection committees of Faculty members, staff and students from the Faculties of Applied Health Sciences, Business, Education, Humanities, Mathematics and Science and Social Sciences. Nominees must have a reputation for superior teaching and be recognized for this quality by students and colleagues.
