David Dubins, Associate Professor, Teaching, recently received a Teaching Stream Pedagogical Grant.
These grants, in amounts of up to $2,000 per year, support teaching and learning research, classroom experimentation and professional development activities.
David was awarded the grant for PHC435 – Pharmaceutical Data Acquisition and Analysis, to cover expenses for the course. He has used the money to purchase digital multimeters and supplies (e.g. resistors, capacitors, and electronic modules).
“I am grateful to the Dean’s Office of the Faculty for Arts and Science for this very helpful teaching grant,” said David. “This year, there was a waitlist of 11 students trying to get into the course. It is exciting for students to learn about programming, electronics, pharmaceutics, and robotics rolled up into one course. I am thankful for the help and support of the Teaching Stream Pedagogical Grant. This grant has helped stock and replenish the course inventory, and allowed me to introduce novel concepts such as 3D printing.”
