Video recreates toast to outstanding teaching achievement

The Celebration of Teaching Excellence, held this year on November 14, has become a featured annual event in the UWindsor calendar, says Alan Wright, vice-provost, teaching and learning.

“The Celebration of Teaching Excellence has grown from its modest beginnings in 2006 to a well-attended community gathering highlighting extraordinary commitment to quality teaching and learning across all of the faculties at the University of Windsor,” he says. “It provides a unique opportunity for the award-winners, family members, friends and colleagues, as well as support staff and the academic administration, to join in a collegial toast of outstanding teaching achievement.”

Among this year’s honourees was Judy Bornais, experiential learning specialist in the Faculty of Nursing, who received a provincial teaching award from the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations.

A colleague described her teaching as “a heartfelt passion, dedication, enthusiasm and caring for her students.”

A full list of the award winners and a copy of the evening’s program are available on the event Web site.
