Congratulations goes out to UBC Psychology MA student Benjamin Cheung, recipient of the 2013/14 Killam Graduate Teaching Assistant Award!
UBC annually awards teaching prizes to UBC teaching assistants in recognition of the valuable role that they play in undergraduate programs. With over 2000 Teaching Assistants working at UBC, winning this award is a remarkable achievement. The prize includes a certificate and $1,000. Successful candidates will have met criteria that result in a high level of respect from undergraduate students and academic or course supervisors.
The awards, given annually since 1996 / 1997, send the important message to students (both undergraduate and graduate) that UBC values teaching.
