Ballot: Board of Directors


For the position of STLHE Vice-President


Denise Stockley, Queen’s University

Since 1991, I have taught, consulted, and provided educational development at the public school, college, university, and corporate levels. In 2001, I joined the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) at Queen’s University, where I am the Interim Director. I am also a Professor of Education and the 2014 Conference Chair for the STLHE National Conference. I would like to be your representative on the Board of Directors in the role of Vice President, working closely with our in-coming President Robert Lapp and our STLHE community.

As a member of STLHE, I have had the opportunity to be part of our larger community of scholars who are all passionate about teaching and learning, which has sustained my own passion for this area. I bring to this position my previous experience on the STLHE Board, where I served for four years. As the Vice President, Partnerships, I negotiated the sponsorships for the Desire2Learn Innovation Award, the 3M National Student Fellowship, and the renewals of agreements. I also supported the creation of the Special Interest Groups for the Teaching Assistants’ and Graduate Students’ Association and the College Sector.  I also spent 2 years as the Awards Chair, where in addition to maintaining existing awards, we created the Desire2Learn and College Sector Awards. As a member of the Educational Developers Caucus, I represented the then-EDC chair on the selection committee for the 3M National Teaching Fellowship and co-led a research project on Pathways to the Profession of Educational Development with colleagues from the EDC. Currently, I am a co-lead on a three year impact study of the 3M National Teaching Fellowship program.

I look forward to giving back to the organization that has given me so much and to the opportunity to represent you over the coming years. 

Depuis 1991, j’ai enseigné, offert des services de consultation, et offert des services de développement éducationnel dans les écoles publiques, les collèges, les universités, et certaines corporations. J’ai rejoint le ‘‘Center for Teaching and Learning’’ (CTL) à l’université Queen’s en janvier 2001 où je suis présentement la directrice intérim. Je suis aussi u professeur en éducation et la présidente de la conférence nationale STLHE. Je voudrais être votre représentante au Conseil d’administration dans le rôle de vice-président, en étroite collaboration avec notre Président à venir, Robert Lapp, et notre communauté STLHE.

J’anticipe avec intérêt l’occasion de vous représenter au sein du comité directeur de la SAPES au cours des années à venir.


For the position of PARTNERSHIPS CO-CHAIR


Peter Wolf, University of Guelph

I have been involved with educational development, continuing education and distance education in higher education for over 20 years, first in the Ontario college system and since 1998, at the University of Guelph where I currently work as Director, Teaching & Learning Initiatives, Office of the Associate Vice-President, Academic.

Bringing my adult and continuing education background to the fore, I have focused my early career on accessibility and educational technology use in higher education. In recent years, I have become known as an advocate for enhanced access to and development of quality higher education learning. My areas of expertise and leadership include the facilitation of evidence-based curriculum development processes at the University of Guelph and beyond. I have been a member of the Ontario Council of Academic Vice Presidents Joint Committee working on the province-wide Undergraduate Degree-Level Expectations initiative and the Engineering Graduate Development Attributes Group supporting the Canada-wide transition to outcomes-based accreditation. I have also just been named to the ONCAT Learning Outcomes Steering Committee.

I am currently the Associate Director for the University of Guelph’s Physical Sciences and Engineering Education Research Centre, and was guest editor for a 2012 edition of the Research magazine devoted to SoTL at the University of Guelph, and am currently involved in several SoTL projects. 

Deeply committed to extending higher educational learning opportunities, I have been a board member of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) in the past and am excited to return to help support this great organization and to grow professionally and personally as a result.


For the position of AWARDS CHAIR


Andrea Han, University of British Columbia

In my current position as Associate Director for Strategic Curriculum Services at UBC, I manage a talented team who place a scholarly approach to practice at the centre of their work. We provide a wide range of services including consultation about curriculum renewal or development, the design of courses and learning experiences, the evaluation of course and program outcomes, and support for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. In this role, I’ve worked with diverse units and people, managed complex projects and overseen budgets —experiences which I feel prepare me to be successful as awards chair.

I also bring experience from positions on number of working boards including a local community centre and the organization representing the Management & Professional group at UBC (AAPS). Perhaps my most relevant board experience comes from the 6 years I spent on the board of ASCUE, a organization of more than 40 years dedicated to fostering creativity and innovation in the use of technology within higher education. I served on the board in several roles, including program chair and president. While I served as president, the board approved major changes to the organization including re-visioning and branding the organization as well as modifications to the board structure and bi-laws.

I’m very excited at the opportunity to be more involved in STLHE and, in particular, to serve as awards chair. Currently serving as the coordinator for the Alan Blizzard Award, I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about the exciting and innovative practices  emerging in higher education across Canada. I look forward to engaging with faculty, students and staff who are passionate about teaching and  learning and celebrating their  contributions as they receive awards recognizing their dedication.
