Peter Coffman is an Associate Professor in the School for Studies in Art and Culture. Since starting at Carleton, he has made efforts to explore the history, meaning and social significance of the built environment, and how it both reflects and shapes human circumstances. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Peter found himself unprepared with only poorly recorded versions of lectures that had been designed for classroom delivery. As a result of his determination to create a quality online course for his students Peter created two asynchronous courses for his students utilizing a combination of material such as lectures, podcasts, weekly discussion forms and other asynchronous engagement tools.
In recognition of his dedication, Peter is a chosen recipient of the 2021 Excellence in Blended and Online Teaching Award for his exceptional impact on student learning in an online environment.
