Professor wins CALT Prize for Scholarship of Teaching & Learning

First UCalgary group to win in the category

"Creating the “Whole Advocate” thru Experiential Learning in the Law Classroom," written by Nickie Nikolaou, Lisa Silver (now judge at Court of King's Bench Alta) and Alexander Dingman, JD'22, won the 2023 CALT Prize for Scholarship of Teaching & Learning, announced this week at the annual conference of the Canadian Association of Law Teachers.

The Prize honours exceptional contributions to the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) by a Canadian law teacher. While SoTL is defined variously, a common understanding is that of investigating questions related to teaching and learning and sharing the answers obtained through peer review, publication, performance or presentation.
