Eight Carleton professors celebrated with 2013 teaching awards

The Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) and the Office of the Associate Vice-President (Teaching and Learning) are pleased to announce eight outstanding educators who have been named the 2013 Carleton University teaching award winners.

Hal Goldman (Department of History), Adrian Chan (Department of Systems and Computer Engineering) and Shawna Dolansky (College of the Humanities – Religion) received the Provost’s Fellowship in Teaching Award for their dedication and leadership to teaching and learning. They have all been designated as Carleton University teaching fellows and will receive $2,500 each.

Both of this year’s recipients of the Excellence in Teaching with Technology Award excelled at integrating educational technology into the classroom. Professor Kevin Cheung (School of Mathematics and Statistics) developed teaching and learning apps for mobile devices and thoughtfully incorporated BigBlueButton into his practice, while professor Peggy Hartwick (School for Linguistics and Language Studies) incorporated online 3-D virtual environments and a student-centered approach to teaching and learning with technology. Both winners will receive $750.

Three new faculty members underscored Carleton’s commitment to teaching excellence and innovation, earning them the New Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award. James McGowan (School for Studies in Art and Culture – Music), Vida Panitch (Department of Philosophy) and Rowan Thomson (Department of Physics) all brought enthusiasm to their teaching and engaged their students with active learning experiences and activities. Each winner will receive $500.

The Provost and Vice-President (Academic) Peter Ricketts and Associate Vice-President (Teaching and Learning) Joy Mighty celebrated the winners at a luncheon on May 30 at Baker’s.
