JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE TEACHER RECIPIENT OF A PERFORMA AWARD

It is with great pride that we announce that Debbie Desrivières, Dental Hygiene teacher, is the recipient of the Performa Award for the Quality of Production and Pedagogical Intervention in College Teaching for the English sector. This award was presented to Debbie at a special ceremony held on April 30.

Jules Bélanger, Director of Perfoma, Faculté d’éducation Université de Sherbrooke wrote:
“… Mrs. Desrivières has been awarded this honor for her exemplary academic record and contributions to the program. She is a recent graduate of the Master in College Teaching program where her Master’s paper….”

Gordon Brown, Academic Dean of John Abbott College: “This recognition by the Université de Sherbrooke is richly deserved. Debbie addressed the graduating class of the Master Teacher Program (MTP) last spring, showing the leadership and commitment to innovation that our Dental Hygiene students benefit from every day. Her Master’s thesis looked at the timing of verbal feedback in developing students’ fine motor skills, on which there was limited research. This is an example of a department that is committed to pedagogy, with a number of teachers having participated in the MTP program.”
