Additional Information on Reviewers

  • Judy Chan, PhD. Sessional Lecturer and Faculty Liaison, Land and Food Systems (LFS); Education Consultant, Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology

I teach a large, introductory food science course, FNH 200, each year and I have taught on-line version of the same course in the past. I adapt a wide range of learning activities in my classes whenever they support my students' learning needs. Some of my favourite and most effective techniques included peer-based learning, immediate classroom respond systems such as iClicker, Polleverywhere.com, and mentimeter.com, wikipedia-based assignment, two-staged exam, etc. I consider it a privilege to have opportunities to visit classroom across campus and I learn so much from each classroom observation.

I have conducted peer reviews for numerous faculty members at various career stages and consider it a privilege to be invited into someone's classroom. My teaching and learning experience is primarily through my role as an educational developer at the Centre. I am also a contract faculty member at the Justice Institute of British Columbia and an Instructional Skills Workshop facilitator; I have been a sessional instructor in the Faculty of Education at UBC. I would be happy to peer review in any discipline or Faculty, in classes of any size.

  • Sue Murphy, B.H.Sc, M. Ed. Department Head, Department of Physical Therapy.

I teach in the professional stream in the Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) program. The MPT program has a case-based curriculum, which encompasses clinical lab sessions, lecture, small group work, large group discussion, tutorials, and many other formats. Although I do not facilitate pure PBL classes, I have been involved with our “case based weeks” which are a quasi-PBL format. We currently have a class size of 80 so I am used to teaching larger classes in various formats. I also have several years of experience in the Clinical education of the MPT students, and have developed and run workshops for clinicians interested in becoming clinical preceptors. In the past I have taught undergraduate students, as well as in certificate and diploma level courses. I am currently an Associate Director for the Centre for Health Education Scholarship at UBC and also the Interprofessional theme lead for the MD undergraduate program. I have a Master’s degree in Adult Education and in 2012 was honoured to receive a Killam Teaching Prize and have completed the UBC Faculty Certificate of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. I would be very happy to review classroom teaching, lesson planning, evaluation of students, Interprofessional initiatives or any other teaching and learning activity.

  • Lucas Wright, Senior Educational Consultant in Learning Technologies, Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology]

I support faculty and staff in integrating technology in their teaching and learning practice. I am an adult learning instructor with more than 15 years of experience teaching adults online, face-to-face and in blended contexts. I have a keen interest in blended learning, open education and the role of learning portfolios in teaching and learning. I support professional development programs at CTLT including the Instructional Skills workshop, Teaching in a Blended Learning Environment, the Learning Technology Hub and the Qualtrics Studio sessions.
