Award Winners Roundtable—Reflections from Teaching Award Recipients 

by Matthew Dunleavy

21st Century Learning is one of the six priorities for action in the York University Academic Plan (2020-2025): “this Priority speaks to diversifying how we teach in an era of perpetual, universal learning. Rather than acquiring static knowledge, the hallmark of education for the future is now intellectual agility, adaptability, and knowing how to learn in any context.” Teaching is central to what we do to support our students today and tomorrow. The impact and legacy of our collective work as Scholarly Teachers, our dedication to student learning, and our commitment to teaching and learning and the student experience matter and deserve to be acknowledged and celebrated.  

On February 28th, 2023 teaching award recipients joined the Teaching Commons for a panel discussion to share with the teaching and learning community how teaching awards have impacted their careers.  You can listen to the recording below.
