Kelly Awards nominees: Rita and Hany
The Kelly Outstanding Teaching Awards recognize core and associate faculty members who are 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 Rita Egizii and Hany Fahmy
Rita “encourage[s] exploration and risk-taking through the design of inquiry-based learning tasks that allow freedom, growth, reflection and risk-taking while remaining research informed and academically rigorous.”
Similarly, Hany “believe[s] that if students were motivated to master the skill of critical thinking when confronted with challenges in the workplace, they will not only understand the course material, but they will also be able to apply it and use it effectively.”
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.
