Chancellor's Chair for Teaching Excellence

Chancellor's Chair for Teaching Excellence

Brock University recognizes the excellent scholarship of teaching of its faculty members. To encourage and sustain our institutional commitment to teaching, learning and educational technology, Brock has established a program of Brock Chancellor’s Chairs for Teaching Excellence.

Chair-holders will be individuals who have demonstrated exceptional promise of outstanding contributions to post-secondary teaching, learning, and/or educational technology and/or have established an exemplary record of achievement in this important aspect of university endeavour.

The Brock Chancellor's Chairs for Teaching Excellence are meant to provide successful nominees with the opportunity to undertake a specific, three-year program of research and practice leading to a significant development in teaching, learning, and/or educational technology. The programs of activity for the chairs may be integrated within their broader research and scholarly focus.

The Brock Chancellor's Chairs for Teaching Excellence provide recipients an annual support grant of $5,000 in each of three years.  The incorporation of the individual's work as a Chair into her or his regular teaching, research, and service agenda will be subject to negotiation with her or his Chair and Dean.
