Best University of Canada

Canada's best university teachers

In 1986, to recognize the importance of university teaching, the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and 3M Canada created the 3M National Teaching Fellowships. Ten university faculty members are recognized each year for their educational leadership and exceptional contributions to teaching. These winning professors have a single purpose—helping students to learn. Since 2006, Maclean’s has proudly been the program’s media sponsor. Here, we announce this year’s 10 winners. Over the next several weeks we will be profiling each winner, but to kick things off we ask all the winners why undergraduate teaching matters to them.

Diana Austin, Department of English, University of New Brunswick

“Undergraduate-teaching approaches, like in-class Designated Speaking and out-of-class Rants&Raves emails, solicit every student’s voice to encourage the skills–and the passion–that will help students shape their lives and their society.”

Lisa Dickson, Department of English, University of Northern British Columbia

“Reaching diverse learners is crucial. Flexible, outcomes-based assignments and in-class reflection on learning open many pathways to student success.”

Arne Kislenko, Department of History, Ryerson University

“You have to keep them awake, engaged, and as connected to the material as possible: for me that means convincing classes that they are part of history, not just students of it.”

Maureen Mancuso, Department of Political Science, University of Guelph

“Teaching is a matter of understanding the process of learning. I try to use methods that permit students to confront and engage with the assigned material, including group discussions—small and large—and co-operative class presentations.”

Scott North, Department of Oncology, University of Alberta

“Teaching medical students Oncology using Standardized Patients has dramatically improved the realism of the learning environment, and this hopefully will translate into more motivated students who will be eager to continue to learn in the future.”

Fred Phillips, Department of Accounting, University of Saskatchewan

“I challenge my students to solve realistic business problems, and engage them by presenting these problems in a variety of media: written cases, news videos, and role play animations. I believe a classroom can be a fun place to learn.”

Yes it is the best idea to let her babysit.

by Montgurl

We come from many generations of chiefs, a grandmother with the order of canada, parents with university degrees, and we're not junkies or alchos. We never feed my child hard candy (why do that?) and we feed her with the best 3 meals a day. I'm just trying to establish here that, just because she let a seemingly trustworthy man in our lives too fast, it does not mean we're from a dirty corner of the world.
