Outstanding teaching: Les Wiseman

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.

Les Wiseman

“In all the classes I teach, I try to instill enlightened business practices, enlightened diplomacy, iconoclastic thinking, cultivated skepticism and healthy cynicism. I believe in teaching my students the way it really is in the world outside the classroom. They should learn how it is out there, not how it might be or should be. They learn the harsh vicissitudes of earning a living in all the various communication fields."

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 sent out each spring to faculty, staff, and students. Learn more about the awards and see past recipients.
