Rohan JayasuderaContinuing Lecturer Rohan Jayasundera, from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, received the 2015 Federation of Students Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award.

Jayasundera has dedicated many years to teaching undergraduate students – most of which are first-year physics students. His enthusiasm for the job has repeatedly sparked interest in his students and encouraged them to explore their interest outside of class.

His commitment to teaching extends outside of the lecture halls. Jayasundera is routinely available outside of class time and encourages students who come seeking help.

Jayasundera is also the Senior Teaching Fellow in the Faculty of Science. The Teaching Fellows enhance student learning by providing teaching leadership to their colleagues and the Faculty. 

His passion for teaching shines through all of his work and Waterloo is a better university for it.

Congratulations Rohan!
