Övrig information

Peter Williams is Dean of the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science and Professor of Physics at Acadia University and won the 2006 CAP Medal for Excellence in Teaching. Peter has developed and taught a great diversity of courses, has shown innovation in the classroom and has published a number of articles in teaching journals. Peter has a clear desire to provide his students with an exceptional learning experience and there is strong evidence, from the received testimonials, that his teaching has had a significant impact on the lives and career choices of his students. Peter devotes significant efforts to improving secondary and post-secondary physics education in Atlantic Canada. Peter is one of those rare individuals who can effectively combine the best of technology enhanced educational techniques while maintaining a strong personal approach to teaching. He has played a critical role in the development of studio physics modes of instruction at Acadia University, has developed several innovative courses, including most recently a Physics of Music course at Acadia. Furthermore, he has provided regional, national and international leadership in new modes of physics teaching through his writing and presentations, and set an exemplary model for applying research methodology to evaluation of the effectiveness of different modes of physics instruction. As a Lecturer in the Department of Physics and Astronomy since 2007, Firas Mansours exceptional teaching style has gained respect and praise from his students. Firas currently teaches first year Physics classes to Engineers, Life Science and Physical Science students and has taught upper year elective Physics courses in the past. He is highly regarded for his quality of teaching, his enthusiasm in teaching, and his understanding of students needs Firas dedication to teaching is exemplary, as is his interest in outreach activities in bringing scientific knowledge beyond the university boundary. Firas is a 2012 Distinguished Teaching Award Recipient at the University of Waterloo. Javed Iqbal is the Director of Science Co-op Program and an Adjunct Professor of Physics at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. At UBC he has taught first year physics for 20 years and has been instrumental in promoting the use of clickers at UBC and other Canadian universities. In 2004, he was awarded the Faculty of Science Excellence in Teaching Award. In 2012, he was awarded The Killam Teaching Prize. His research areas include theoretical nuclear physics, computational modelling of light scattering from nanostructures and computational physics. Dr. Marina Milner-Bolotin is a science educator within the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy at UBC. She specializes in science (physics) teaching and studies ways of using technology to promote student interest in science. For the last 20 years she has been teaching science and mathematics in Israel, US (Texas and New Jersey) and Canada. She has taught phys...
