Anne is a historian born in Québec City. She started teaching in the School of Canadian Studies as associate professor in 2009. She sees her role in academia as a builder of intellectual and cultural bridges between the two solitudes.
She is a passionate, award-winning teacher who enjoys spending her professional and personal energies promoting both rigorous critical thinking, and intuitive approaches to learning. She is constantly finding new research and teaching material in myths, religious rituals, and tales.
In 2015, after bringing her lectures online, she was awarded the Carleton University Excellence in Teaching with Technology Award. She is changing the way online courses are delivered, making them more engaging, thought-provoking and hands-on for students. Her well-organized and simple class outline makes her courses learner-centered, focused on helping students succeed.
Through online group research projects, mini quizzes, guest speakers and documentaries, Anne helps guide students into being more critical thinkers. She says support from her department and colleagues have made her online success possible.
The Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE), in partnership with D2L, have awarded Anne with a 2019 D2L Innovation Award in Teaching and Learning. She received the Provost’s Fellowship in Teaching Award and was also been designated as a Carleton University teaching fellow in 2019.
