It is with great pleasure that the Applied Health Sciences (AHS) Teaching Fellows announce the Winter 2019 Teaching Assistant Award recipients:
- Michelle Loo (Kinesiology)
- Megan Muir (Recreation and Leisure Studies)
- Saad Ahmad (School of Public Health and Health Systems)
These three graduate students exceeded the expectations of their course supervisors and the expectations of the undergraduate students they interacted with. Congratulations and thank you for your hard work and dedication!
The AHS Teaching Fellows would also like to congratulate Tamara Maciel, program director for the School of Anatomy, on being the recipient of the 2019 AHS Teaching Award. Tamara has proven to be a perennial innovator and leader in the classroom. Tamara’s nominations accounted for nearly 20 percent of the entire Faculty pool of nominations.
One nominator said, “Tamara goes to great lengths to make sure every student is successful and enjoys themselves while in her class.” Another wrote, “Tamara has inspired me to continue in the field of kinesiology, particularly due to her outstanding teaching style and passion for this course. She goes above and beyond to ensure her students are successful and that’s what I appreciate most about her.”
In addition to winning the AHS Teaching Award, Maciel joins the AHS Teaching Fellows team as the Kinesiology representative.
The Teaching Fellows added that the Faculty is fortunate to have many exceptional educators and thanked everyone for their commitment to undergraduate programing. The Fellows aim to raise the profile of teaching and learning in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences to encourage and celebrate teaching excellence.
