Cathryn Jackson receives E K McCann Award
03 Jan 2017
UBC Senior Lecturer, Cathryn Jackson, is the 2017-18 recipient of the Elizabeth Kenny McCann Scholar Award. The two-year award of $30,000 allows the holder to support and enhance teaching/learning pedagogy and scholarship in the UBC School of Nursing.
Cathryn Jackson was selected for her proposed program to support sustained curriculum change through faculty development initiatives directed toward a) engaging faculty in scholarly approaches to curriculum development and the theoretical and practical underpinnings needed to optimize learning-centred pedagogy; b) building capacity and sustainability for the use of simulation-based methodologies and c) capitalizing on the work being undertaken by the Undergraduate Program Committee and others involved with curriculum design and implementation.
The award is made possible through a fund developed in memory of Elizabeth Kenny McCann. Beth McCann was a leading force in the development of nursing education in British Columbia. A well-loved faculty member in the School of Nursing for 35 years, she served in a variety of roles, including Acting Director. In her honour, this scholar award enables a faculty leader to support teaching/learning initiatives within the UBC School of Nursing.
