Angela Merriam, SPPA Instructor

We are proud to share that SPPA Instructor Angela Merriam has received the Contract Instructor Teaching Innovation Grant, one the 2024 CU Achievement Awards, in recognition of excellence in her teaching.

This award provides support to a Contract Instructor for investigating student learning and alternative approaches to teaching and assessing student learning at the individual, departmental, Faculty, or institutional levels. The overall aims are to foster deep student learning at Carleton and promote curiosity, reflection and exploration in the areas of teaching and learning.

Angela will be using the grant towards incorporating community-engaged pedagogy (CEP), authentic assessment and Values-based leadership (VBL) into the Public Policy & Administration Capstone course for students to gain experience through CEP, develop the skills necessary for a career in public policy, develop greater clarity and focus on their own core values, understand the values that underpin relevant policy areas and feel empowered to take leadership through drawing on these values.

Congratulations Angela!
