Outstanding teaching: Milton McClaren

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).

Milton McClaren

School of Environment and Sustainability

"As a teacher I try to communicate my joy and fascination in learning to my students. My goal is to ignite and nurture every student’s passion for learning, belief in their capacity to learn, and to develop their commitment to lifelong learning.  My goal is to provide opportunities and learning environments in which all learners are invited to broaden their concepts about learning, to pursue talents, and explore possibilities previously ruled as unattainable. When a student tells me that they are seeing possibilities they never before imagined then I feel that I may be doing something right in my work."
