Professor Don Cyr has received the prestigious Brock Chancellor's Chair for Teaching Excellence Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions to teaching and learning at Brock.
This has been an outstanding year for Professor Cyr. He recently received the Graduate Teaching Award as voted on by graduate business students, and the Excellence in Teaching Award as selected by the Faculty of Business. This latest award recognizes the excellent scholarship of teaching of Brock’s faculty members. Only three faculty members are chosen each year from across the University to sit as Chancellor’s Chairs for Teaching Excellence.
Chair-holders are 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 Chair for Teaching Excellence provides 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.
