Dr. Richard Ascough named a 2018 3M National Teaching Fellow

Congratulations to Dr. Richard Ascough, Faculty of Arts and Science Associate Dean (Teaching and Learning) for being named one of the 2018 3M National Teaching Fellows for his imaginative, experiential work as a Queen's School of Religion Professor.

The 3M National Teaching Fellowship was created in 1986 through a partnership of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) and 3M Canada, as an initiative to recognize exceptional teachers in higher education. Canada now has over 300 3M National Teaching Fellows, with up to ten selected annually. Winners become a lifetime fellow of the society and attend a retreat in Quebec. 

“These 3M National Teaching fellows are great teachers and inspirational leaders, but they also demonstrate critical hope—the belief that higher education can change the world combined with the courage to persist in that belief,” says coordinator Shannon Murray in an article by Maclean's.
