Congratulations to King's Professor Ruth Ann Strickland who received the King’s University College Award for Excellence in Teaching by Part Time Faculty at King's Autumn Convocation on October 23, 2014. Professor Strickland teaches senior courses covering a broad range of topics in her Accounting discipline. She has been able to marry twenty years of experience in industry with a very intentional engagement in teaching seminars, conferences and instructional skills workshops to hone her teaching skills and become by all accounts an outstanding teacher.
Her students describe her as extremely organized, passionate, energetic, in tune with the degree of student understanding and readily available. These testimonials are consistent across all her courses and among both local and international students.
Her colleagues attest to her high degree of competence and professionalism, to her curriculum development skills, to her dedication and to her excellent communication skills.
In Professor Strickland’s own words, “good teaching does not happen by accident”. Indeed, she is an exemplar of what excellence in teaching requires and continues to make an outstanding contribution to the academy.
