President

Denise Stockley Denise Stockley became President of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) in June 2017 at the end of her term as President-elect. The term of office is three years, with an overlapping third year to mentor the President-Elect.

Through STLHE, I have had amazing mentors and have experienced tremendous personal and professional growth. 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.

Since 1991, I have taught, researched, consulted, and provided educational development at the public school, college, university, and corporate levels. In 2001, I joined Queen’s University and am currently a Professor and Scholar in Higher Education. Previously, I e served as the STLHE 2014 Conference Chair and for two years as Vice-President, and 1 year President-Elect. I also served from 2008-2012 on the Board, two years as the Awards Chair and two years as the Vice-President Partnerships. Through these roles, I was part of the team that negotiated the Desire2Learn Innovation Award, the 3M National Student Fellowship, and supported the creation of Special Interest Groups through the Board processes. As part of advancing scholarship within STLHE, I co-led a project on Pathways to the Profession of Educational Development with colleagues from the EDC and co-led a multi-year impact study of the 3M National Teaching Fellowship program that culminated at the STLHE 2016 Conference.

My goal in my presidency is to continue to create opportunities for others, and to build upon STLHE’s advocacy role within higher education through outreach initiatives based on our membership needs and expertise. I look forward to giving back to the organization that has given me so much and the opportunity to represent you over the coming years.
