Professor, Department of Biology
Provost’s College Award for Outstanding Teaching (College of Arts & Science: BSc Programs)

“I find that students prefer variety in delivery and that also helps me to gauge student understanding of specific topics. A good sense of humour, as well as showing that instructors are only human, also seem to go a long way toward student enjoyment of a course.”

Professor, Department of English
Provost’s College Award for Outstanding Teaching (College of Arts & Science: BA, BMus or BFA Programs)

“Teaching is about working to open new avenues for students to make discoveries, appreciate and articulate ideas, and to expand their views. I have pursued interdisciplinary teaching wherever I can because—ideally—it opens new vistas for students to respond to with creativity and inventiveness.”

Glorie Tebbutt

Lecturer, Department of English and Women’s and Gender Studies Program
Sylvia Wallace Sessional Lecturer Award

“Vocation has been defined as ‘the place where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep need.’ Teaching brings me ‘deep gladness,’ and I attempt to meet students’ ‘deep need’ for stimulation, learning, engagement, and encouragement.”

David York

David York
Lecturer, Department of Political Studies
Sylvia Wallace Sessional Lecturer Award

“…Teaching has made me an engaged life-long learner. In the classroom, I strive to show students how the academic content that defines the study of politics is relevant to the world around them.”
