For the third time in seven years, two UBC faculty members have been recognized for their exceptional contributions to teaching and learning at Canadian universities. Tiffany Potter, Professor of Teaching in the Department of English Language and Literatures, and Paul Cubbon, Assistant Dean, Innovation at the UBC Sauder School of Business, have been named 2020 3M National Teaching Fellows.
The award, jointly sponsored by 3M Canada and the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE), is the highest recognition of individual teaching excellence and educational leadership in Canada.
Every year, the fellowship celebrates up to 10 university and college educators who show leadership in enhancing post-secondary education and a sustained dedication to undergraduate education. Winners become lifetime members of the society, a national organization working to advance teaching and learning in higher education.
Prof. Potter and Asst. Dean Cubbon join 20 other 3M National Teaching Fellows that UBC counts among current and former faculty and alumni.
