Acadia University has launched the Evans Teaching and Learning Scholar Program. The program”created as a collaboration between the university’s Centre for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Advancement”will focus on teaching innovation and creating communities of practice. Scholars serve a three-year term in the role, during which time they receive a three-credit-hour course release and funds to support their project work. The inaugural scholars are Dr Daniel Blustein (Evans Scholar in the Pure and Applied Science faculty), Dr Michelle Boyd (Evans Scholar in the Professional Studies faculty), and Dr Chelsea Gardner (Evans Scholar for the Arts faculty). The program is supported by donors and alumni Donna and Rod Evans.
