Teaching excellence recognized
Ollivier Dyens, Vice Provost Teaching and Learning, chaired a committee with representatives from all four Faculties, along with the Centre for Teaching and Learning Services and the Office of the President.
This year both Martin Pugh (Engineering and Computer Science) and Jordan LeBel (John Molson School of Business) will share the Award for Excellence in Teaching for a full-time faculty member. Mary Maly (Arts and Science) also earned that award in the part-time faculty category. This honour is bestowed on professors with over five years experience.
The same award for a non-tenured faculty member was granted to Lyes Kadem (Engineering and Computer Science) in the new faculty category.
Finally, Fred Szabo (Arts and Science) was recognized for originality and innovation in teaching.
The candidates for the awards are put forward by their respective deans who can only nominate one person for each award from within their Faculty. The finalists for this year’s recognition will also be presented at the breakfast.
