The Kelly Outstanding Teaching Awards recognize core and associate faculty members who are representative of outstanding teaching at Royal Roads University. Leading up to announcing the recipients in early October and the awards presentations at Campus Conversation Oct. 15, we will highlight each nominee via a special profile on their teaching philosophy.

The nominee profiled this week is Yifei Wang.

“I believe that teaching should nurture students for who they are, and give them more spaces to explore their diverse abilities. Less explicit instructions should be provided to give students a broader ownership over their learning. Moreover, students’ individual skills should be emphasized and developed in a meaningful way. One way that I achieve these goals is to become a listener--listening to students’ voices”

The Kelly Outstanding Teaching Awards are open to all Royal Roads University faculty members who are actively engaged in teaching for-credit or non-credit courses at Royal Roads. A call for nominations is made each spring to faculty, staff, and students. Learn more about the awards and past recipients
