Hats off to Donna Drynan who recently completed a UBC Certificate on Curriculum and Pedagogy in Higher Education – International Faculty SoTL Leadership Program

The aim of the certificate program is to better prepare educational leaders at UBC with scholarly approaches to teaching, learning and curriculum practices. Faculty members participate in the program to investigate research-informed, evidence-based and strategically-aligned curriculum and pedagogical practices within their disciplinary context (e.g., curriculum renewal and evaluation, peer-review of teaching, learning-centred course design and assessment, student engagement strategies, flexible learning initiatives).

The program itself was 8 months long, and Donna was externally reviewed by a peer to ensure acceptable completion of all program requirements. The Department is very proud of all her hard work, and extends its congratulations on this great accomplishment.
