Zachary Patterson, an Instructor II in the Department of Neuroscience, has actively pursued teaching excellence since he began his career at Carleton, earning him a 2022 New Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award. His passion for student wellness and success is evident. During the pandemic, he received two Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) grants to research the impact of compassionate grading and instruction on student stress and academic achievement, as well as to look at how modes of learning on-campus and online influence mental wellness and academic success. He also developed an institutional Wellness Service Navigator app that will be launched shortly.
