Naowarat (Ann) Cheeptham
Faculty of Science, Thompson Rivers University

Ann’s inspiring approach combines experiential learning in a STEM discipline with art that enables upper-year students to enrich their own learning in science while educating the community. With the intent of developing each student’s unique potential and encouraging diversity in teaching-learning with real-world relevance, Ann engages her students in their understanding of her upper level Fermentation course in developing a menu of microbially fermented foods to launch an unconventional student-oriented and community-engaged assignment for a fundraising dinner called “TRU Ferments (Come Dine With Microbes)”. She has also collaboratively designed a case study exercise based on actual court-cases entitled “Murder by[...]

Her work brings students into the heart of community, engaging all in dialogue and holistic learning about science and art ininspiring ways.

Denyse Lafrance Horning
Faculty of Education and Professional Studies, Nipissing University

Denyse’s unique experiential learning assignment in a Sport Marketing course engagesstudents in a real-world impact of fundraising to serve community needs. Over a 12-week term, students work through strategic organizing committees to plan, promote,and execute a charity-linked varsity sporting event. Students develop valuable skills through collaborating with multiple partners to maximize event attendance and reach fundraising targets. Over five years of iterative refinement, this project has evolved toeffectively deliver unique learning and development outcomes,and it has raised almost $40,000 for important community causes. A key aspect of this field-based learning is the interaction among multiple stakeholders and the focus on[...]
