Outstanding teaching: April Warn

The Kelly Outstanding Teaching Awards recognize core and associate faculty members who are representative of outstanding teaching at Royal Roads. Leading up to the 2016 awards announcement in the fall, we will highlight nominees (in alphabetical order) via a special profile on their teaching philosophy.

April Warn

“I believe as a teacher and academic I should mentor students throughout their academic study, engage them in current events both locally and globally, as well as in academic debates within their fields of study. It is essential to link academic subjects to an area of practice that not only focuses on the theoretical but makes the links between theory/research and practice so students understand the ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’ when working in practice.”
