“Students find their voice in my classroom,” says Kim, “because they quickly learn that I truly value what they have to say both about their learning and about themselves as people.”
The University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus is proud to announce that Dr. Kim Fordham Misfeldt has been recognized as a 2013 3M National Teaching Fellow by 3M Canada and the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE). Dr. Misfeldt is a professor of German and Chair of Humanities at Augustana Campus in Camrose.
“The unifying theme of so much of what I do is found in the words Teaching Language, Giving Voice,” Kim explains. “Teaching language is so much more than vocabulary and grammar. It opens doors for students to new ideas, cultures, literatures, and ways of thinking. Students find their voice in my classroom because they quickly learn that I truly value what they have to say both about their learning and about themselves as people.”
Established in 1986, the 3M National Teaching Fellowship program is sponsored jointly by 3M Canada and the STLHE. It is the only pan-Canadian, cross-disciplinary recognition of educational leadership and excellence in university teaching. Fellows must fulfill two principal criteria: superlative undergraduate teaching, and the enhancement of post-secondary teaching through superior leadership.
