Teaching Stories

Teaching Stories banner

At any university, faculty members are surrounded by peers who engage in brilliant research, collegial service, and excellent teaching. 

Of these three activities, the first two are easily witnessed: with a click of a few buttons, we can access research published by colleagues, and in committee meetings we see the skill and dedication with which colleagues serve their departments and faculties.

The third activity – teaching – is less visible. Teaching typically happens behind the closed door of a classroom, where students witness and experience the teaching practice of their instructor, but colleagues are left, so to speak, in the dark. 

To help bring the excellent teaching of colleagues to light, CTE is developing a series of "teaching stories": brief profiles of Waterloo instructors whose teaching is especially effective, innovative, or otherwise noteworthy. The purpose of these teaching stories is to honour excellent teaching in its own right, and to share good practices that can inspire or benefit other Waterloo instructors.

We'll be adding new teaching stories every term, so if you know of a colleague who would be a good subject, please contact Mark Morton
