Martha Mullally, an instructor in Carleton’s Department of Biology, was named the 2021 Carleton University Chair in Teaching Innovation for her dedication to encouraging new teaching practices within the STEM disciplines.

With this award, she plans to strengthen the link between the Faculty of Science and Teaching and Learning Services to help change the way instructors teach. She hopes to implement more evidence-based teaching practices to positively impact student performance and success rates across the Faculty. In addition, Mullally says she wants to continue to develop the community pieces around Carleton’s teaching culture so that people feel supported and able to try new approaches in their teaching.
