Faculty Association announces teaching awards
Seven professors and a university librarian have received 2001 teaching awards from the University of Guelph Faculty Association (UGFA).
UGFA’s annual awards were established in 1984 to acknowledge significant contributions to teaching by individual professors and academic librarians. “These are the men and women who not only inform but, more importantly, inspire their students,” said psychology professor Thomas Herrmann, UGFA president.
Recipients of the Distinguished Professorial Teaching Awards are honoured for making a difference both to their profession and in the lives of their students by ensuring the best instruction and research, Herrmann said. The Special Merit Award honours those who have shown innovation in their teaching development. The Academic Librarianship Award recognizes contributions and scholarly achievement in the academic community.
This year’s winners are:
Distinguished Professorial Teaching Awards
Special Merit Awards
Academic Librarianship Award
