SFU Excellence in Teaching Award, 2010
Beedie School of Business
Professor Andrew Gemino received the 2010 Excellence in Teaching Award.
“I like to have fun with things,” says Gemino. “People learn by engaging, not by sitting for three hours watching PowerPoint slides.”
Gemino continues to do something special in each lecture, whether he’s teaching 20 students or 200.
He’s most proud of a project-management class he has developed with other colleagues that requires students to work in teams on a project that improves a community of their choice.
“I call it learning by doing with others, for others.”
