History: Rebecca Beausaert Awarded COA Teaching Award!

Posted on Monday, October 26th, 2015

Rebecca Beausaert, a sessional instructor in our Department, is this year's recipient of the Teaching Excellence Award (Sessional Instructor) in the College of Arts. The selection committee was particularly impressed by Rebecca's dedication to her students, who rave about her engaging way of presenting material, and her accessibility and helpfulness outside class.

Rebecca says: "I am very proud and honoured to receive this award, and wish to thank the College of Arts for recognizing me. I am very fortunate to be part of such a supportive community of faculty members and students here at Guelph. Teaching awards act as great motivators, encouraging instructors at all levels to continue offering the best possible learning experience."

Congratulations from all of us on a richly deserved award, which will be presented on Monday October 26 at the Awards Reception in the Atrium of the Science Complex at 4:30pm.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
