Dr. Phil Winne receives Distinguished SFU Professor designation
Congratulations to Dr. Phil Winne, who along with six of Simon Fraser University’s leading academic scholars, have been honoured with the prestigious title of Distinguished SFU Professor. This designation recognizes Dr. Winne's outstanding performance and achievements, along with celebrating his international pre-eminence in the education field.
Dr. Winne’s distinguished, prolific career has spanned over 4 decades with a focus on educational psychology, self-regulated learning and learning analytics; partnering with schools, colleges, universities, and researchers around the world to explore how big data can help learners learn through software system designs. In 2019, Dr. Winne was inducted as a Fellow to the Academy of Social Sciences by the Royal Society of Canada (RSC), Canada’s highest academic honour.
The Distinguished SFU Professor title comes with a special requirement for members to share their work with the public through events such as lectures, panels and presentations. This recognition not only spotlights the contribution they have made to their fields in the past, but also helps them magnify that impact through public engagement and student and faculty mentorship.
