Our TLC Director, Stephanie Chu, returned from parental leave in early September after spending a number of months on a “special project” that—or more correctly, who—recently celebrated a first birthday. We are happy to have her back and also want to say a sincere thank you to our Associate Director, Chris Groeneboer, who provided very capable leadership during Stephanie’s absence.
Eighteen graduate students participated in the spring 2013 Certificate Program in University Teaching and Learning (CPUTL). As the above photo illustrates, the graduation ceremony on April 9 was a true celebration. Peter Liljedahl (centre, wearing a jacket and an elegant gray vest), Associate Dean, Graduate Studies, and associate professor in the Faculty of Education, addressed the graduands.
The CPUTL program was led by Russell Day (left), a senior lecturer in the Department of Psychology, along with Kathryn Ricketts and Erin Aspenlieder, both TLC educational consultants. Here they pose with Jay Park, a graduate student in Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology, who proudly displays his graduation certificate while Kathryn exercises a stabilizing influence.
