Killam Graduate Teaching Assistant Award

This year, three APSC teaching assistants were honoured with Killam Graduate Teaching Assistant Awards. The following graduate students made contributions that “[resulted] in a high level of respect from undergraduate students and academic or course supervisors”:

  • Mahsa Khalili (Biomedical Engineering)
  • Masoud Malakoutian (Mechanical Engineering)
  • Jeanie Malone (Biomedical Engineering)

Recipients of the award are selected based on several criteria, including whether they have demonstrated a broad knowledge of their field, incorporated new teaching skills and worked in a collegial manner with students, faculty supervisors and colleagues.  

Killam Teaching Prize

The Killam Teaching Prize recognizes excellence in teaching and is awarded annually to faculty nominated by students, colleagues and alumni. 

This year's APSC-affiliated recipients are:

  • Agnes d’Entremont (Mechanical Engineering)
  • Cheryl Segaric (Nursing)

Killam scholars are individuals who have contributed, or are likely to contribute, “to the advancement of learning or to win distinction in a profession.” Since 1965, more than 2,000 students, faculty members and others at UBC have received support from the Killam Trusts.
