UWindsor teacher candidates have recognized top instructors in the Faculty of Education, issuing three Teaching Excellence Awards decided by a student vote.
In total, 186 ballots were cast, reports Education Society president Theriza Veloro, selecting a winner in each division:
- Primary-Junior, Catherine Vanner
- Junior-Intermediate, James Oloo
- Intermediate-Senior, Joelle Nagle
“Congratulations to all of these professors,” says Veloro. “We understand that another year of learning in a pandemic context was a huge challenge, so students voted for a professor that they found to demonstrate compassion for students, knowledge and wisdom in the profession, and diligence with teaching in a virtual context.”
She says the society is working towards a formal ceremony to honour the awardees.
