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)
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,
