Congratulations to all of the 2020 award winners. It is wonderful to see (and experience) the meaningful and engaging instruction happening at Mason. A special congratulations to Dr. Holly Klee. It can be difficult to apply the pedagogical principles we empirically "know" to support students in the higher education environment to everyday instruction. You continue to demonstrate your commitment to learning and teaching through reflective practice. It is an honor to learn alongside and from you.
