Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Laurier's Teaching Fellows demonstrate exceptional contributions to teaching and learning, and have established an exemplary record of achievement in educational leadership. To further the impact of their individual efforts, the fellowship seeks to establish connections between educators working to promote teaching excellence and student success.

The fellowship program was developed in 2013 by the inaugural associate vice-president: Teaching and Learning. The fellowship program was designed to identify and cultivate a community of leaders who could work to further the teaching and learning mission of the institution within their own discipline, across Laurier and beyond.

Over the years, the community aspect of the fellowship program advanced as they became focused on developing collaborative programming and research projects to advance a culture of teaching excellence at an institutional level. 

Since its inception, the fellows developed a Teaching Day Retreat, a lunch and learn series and a journal reading club, among their other projects. They have presented at regional, national and international teaching and learning events to share insights from their evolving practice, and to inspire colleagues to approach their teaching practice in innovative ways.

"The Teaching Fellowship Program is a clear recognition of the essential value of the work that classroom educators do. This is a group of exceptionally committed, energetic and successful educators and I feel proud to be in their company."

– Deena Mandell, Laurier Teaching Fellow
