In a recent announcement on the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC)'s website, our Statistics Associate Professor of Teaching, Tiffany Timbers, was awarded the first SSC Early Career Educator Award for 2023. This new award recognizes excellence in teaching statistics by early career SSC members, through commitment to evidence-based pedagogy and in contributions to statistical education in Canada. Such excellence may be demonstrated through contributions to the scholarship of teaching and learning, attention to accessibility and inclusivity of learning environments, or innovation in development and/or implementation of new courses, curricula or programs.
Tiffany has received this award “for her internationally recognized contributions to the fields of statistics and data science education; for her commitment to creating broadly accessible learning environments; and her clear vision, expansive knowledge, and passion for teaching data science to students from a wide variety of backgrounds.”
We’re grateful for Tiffany’s dedication to teaching and proud of her accomplishments.
