Dr. Mercedes Rowinsky-Geurts 2013/2014
Laurier Inaugural Teaching Fellow
Department of Languages and Literatures, Faculty of Arts
Project Details: Mercedes has championed the creating of active learning classrooms at Laurier's Waterloo campus. Her fellowship project will explore current practices of active learning at Laurier, focusing on developing awareness of the potential to extend these methodologies across disciplines. Her main goal is to build a community of instructors already involved in active learning, gathering information about their experience of implementing such practices in the disciplines, and developing a resource tool-box fitting our mission as an institution. Focusing initially on first and second year, and moving towards experiences at the senior level, she hopes this intentional approach will contribute to an enhanced teaching and learning experience at Laurier.
