SCS Award for Distinguished Teaching (Winter 2020)

Every year at Spring Convocation, the School of Continuing Studies honours one or more of its instructors with an Award for Distinguished Teaching. The School presented its first Award for Distinguished Teaching in 1993. Our goal was, and remains, to recognize teachers who embody the highest attributes of the teaching profession.
 

For this award, the School wishes to honour teachers who

 

  • motivate, stimulate, and inspire their students;
  • value and build on their students’ existing knowledge and competencies;
  • are passionate about supporting students’ learning;
  • are responsive to requests for guidance;
  • help students develop autonomy in the learning process;
  • provide encouragement and a sense of accomplishment notwithstanding the difficulty of any given assignment or course;
  • consistently demonstrate their currency and expertise in the subject matter or field;
  • present material in compelling or innovative ways;
  • relate course content to learners’ experiences outside the classroom;
  • inspire students to commit themselves to becoming life-long learners;
  • foster an inclusive learning environment; and
  • are at all times professional and respectful.

 

 

The School relies on students like you to identify teachers who exemplify these qualities and values.
