Kelly Awards nominees: Kim and Sandy
representative of outstanding teaching at Royal Roads. Leading up to the 2020 awards presentation at November 12’s Campus Conversation, we will highlight nominees (in alphabetical order and in pairs) via a special profile on their teaching philosophy.
The first nominees profiled are Kim Moller and Sandy Walker.
“Inspired and enabled learners explore course content guided by their curiosity. They take risks and share ideas when practicing the application of new knowledge and skills. They reflect on their experience in ways that challenge existing paradigms. I feel most satisfied as an instructor when learners “forget” I am in the room and when they approach me as their coach rather than as their teacher.” writes Kim.
In Sandy’s teaching philosophy statement, she shares: “Learning should be transformational and, after graduating with an RRU degree, I want to ensure that learners are able to go confidently into the business world armed with the toolbox needed to diagnose, analyze, and resolve the very real challenges that face business leaders today with critical thinking and innovation.”
All Royal Roads University faculty members who are actively engaged in teaching for-credit or non-credit courses at RRU are eligible to be nominated for the Kelly Outstanding Teaching Awards. A call for nominations is sent out each spring to faculty, staff, and students. Learn more about the awards and see past recipients.
