SFU Excellence in Teaching Award, 2009
Department of Psychology
Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
Dr. Russell Day received the 2009 SFU Excellence in Teaching Award.
Student nominators say his lectures are engaging and laced with his trademark humour as well as passion for his topic. They also appreciate the music he plays (U2 and Queen) prior to class and his invitation to drop by his office and introduce themselves.
Day balances his first-year class load with teaching instructional-skills workshops at universities across the country. Not bad for a fellow who never earned a high school diploma and started university at age 30.
