Teaching
Recent courses

Teaching is my passion.  I am committed to active, student-centered learning and keeping up with the latest research on teaching and learning in higher education.  
I have replaced exams with a wide range of written and other assessments to help my students show me what they have learned.  
In 2013 the University of Lethbridge Students' Union asked me to present one of the annual Last Lectures, in 2014 they recognized me with their Teaching Excellence Award, and the following year with the Award for Outstanding Dedication to Students.  
In 2014-2016 I held the Board of Governors' Teaching Chair at the University of Lethbridge, focusing on peer mentoring as a transformative practice for faculty and instructors.  
I was honored in 2016 to be shortlisted for the American Historical Association's Eugene Asher Distinguished Teaching Award, and in 2018 I was awarded the U of L's  Distinguished Teaching Award

Instructional Skills Workshops

Since 2012 I have co-facilitated eight Instructional Skills Workshops for faculty and instructors.  These four-day workshops help faculty identify and build on their existing strengths, develop new skills and techniques, and develop an interdisciplinary cohort of peers who also love teaching.  I am also an ISW trainer and have co-facilitated three Facilitator Development Workshops.
