Teaching Excellence Award - Legacy Gallery


“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”

Albert Einstein, 1940

This website is devoted to the celebration of outstanding teaching, and to the UFV faculty who have mastered the art of awakening the joy of learning within their students.

Our university harbours a great many teachers whose interactions with their students are transformational. Chief among them are the faculty chosen annually by both students and colleagues to receive the Teaching Excellence Award, an award UFV has been conferring since 2000.

In the hope of capturing some of the expertise of these skilled practitioners, they were asked to share some of their experiences, hard-won insights, and even some advice, all as resources for their colleagues. Although some of these faculty have retired or moved to jobs elsewhere, they all generously agreed to participate in this “legacy” project.

What you will find here are brief video excerpts from interviews with each of the recipients of UFV’s Teaching Excellence Award. In addition, most have provided their statement of teaching philosophy as well as a sample assignment which has elicited excellent work from their students. When possible, the video of the presentation of their award at convocation, including the Dean’s tribute, has also been included.

Please explore the site. These faculty have so much to offer to willing learners.
