Outstanding teaching: Beth Page

Tami Saj

Each year, the Kelly Outstanding Teaching Award recognizes a core or associate faculty member who is representative of outstanding teaching at Royal Roads. Leading up to the 2014 award announcement this fall, we will highlight each of the nominees in a special profile on their teaching philosophy. Some nominees have already been profiled and others will be in the coming weeks; you can see all profiles here (updated each week).

“While I acknowledge that I have expertise and content knowledge, I believe the learners are the experts of their own lives. I am first and foremost a facilitator of experience and learning. I offer learners the opportunities to have experiences that will allow them to both surface long held assumptions, achieve awareness of the impact of these assumptions and make choices that will inform their future actions. I try to avoid falling into the trap of being the answer giver. When I am operating at my best, I am asking great questions to help harvest the wisdom from within that is seeking to be given a voice.”
