SFU Excellence in Teaching Award, 2002

Department of Political Science
Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

Dr. Andrew Heard received the 2002 SFU Excellence in Teaching Award.

“My assignments are very different, and they get more difficult—and interesting—as students become more senior,” he says. Graduate students, for example, are asked to write opinion pieces for national newspapers. “I encourage them to become engaged in the political world around them,” he adds. “What they learn becomes more meaningful.”

“I owe much of my continued interest in the subjects I teach to the students I teach.”
