The Dynamic Classroom: Engaging Students in Higher Education


Catherine Black, an Associate Professor of French, recently arrived at Simon Fraser University (British Columbia), and has been teaching for 20 years in two other Canadian universities (the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University). She has been awarded multiple teaching and leadership awards. For several years, she was a Faculty Associate for Instructional Development and a mentor for new faculty members. In this capacity, she has advised, in dozens of workshops, many new and more senior colleagues, as well as future instructors (PHD and MA candidates) on pedagogy, course design, and innovative teaching approaches. She is also the co-author of two textbooks, and has presented her research, which focuses on innovative teaching approaches designed to motivate students, at many national and international conferences.
