Dynamic Teaching Earns Faculty Killam Awards

There are three rules in Dr. Bob’s classroom, says one student of music professor Robert Pritchard. 1) Don’t Panic; 2) Stay with the tour; and 3) If you don’t understand, it’s the teacher’s fault!

Pritchard’s creative approach earned him one of 22 Killam Teaching Prizes, awarded to faculty members during Spring Congregation ceremonies.

Other winners include Education Prof. Pat Mirenda, North America’s leading authority on autism, and Botany Prof. Jennifer Klenz, an expert on plant and drosophila (fruit fly) genetics.

Killam winners are selected by their faculties based on recommendations from students and colleagues. Each receives $5,000 from university endowment sources. Recipients are distinguished by their creativity, commitment and dynamic approach to learning.
