Congratulations to Dr. David Brock on winning the OUSA Award for Teaching Excellence! 

David was one of five faculty nominees for the Faculty of Science MSU Teaching Award, but he had already been selected as the best overall instructor at McMaster for the 2012-13 academic year and, as such, the recipient of the OUSA Award for Teaching Excellence.

On the OUSA website, the award is described as follows:  The Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance Award for Teaching Excellence recognizes educators who excel at unlocking the potential of Ontario’s young people. It is our pleasure to give these remarkable professionals the recognition they deserve. Successfully engaging individuals in the learning experience is highly dependent on an instructor’s ability to spark the desire to learn in students.
A good textbook and a high-tech classroom are not enough to provide a quality education.  An excellent instructor will be able to engage their students in the process of learning and discovery and help them develop the thinking and learning skills that form the foundation of a high quality educational experience. With this in mind, the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance annually presents its teaching awards to professors from each of our member campuses, that have taken this role to heart and have been selected by their students as examples of teaching excellence.
 
Once again, congratulations David!!
