Recognition of Scholarly Activity

At Red Deer College, faculty are frequently involved in an extensive range of scholarly activity beyond their instructional duties. On October 19, four RDC faculty members were honoured at the Recognition of Scholarly Activity Awards.

The award recipients, who are being recognized for scholarly activities completed in 2016, include:

  • Dr. Heather Marcovitch | Articles, The Yellow Book: Reshaping the Fin de Siėcle and Oscar Wilde at the Shaw Festival (Niagra-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada)
  • Candi Raudebaugh and Kristen Gulbransen | Interprofessional Communities of Practice: Fostering Resilience in Post-Secondary Students (shared collaboration)
  • Leanne Vig | Workshop Roundtable Discussion: Classroom Activities and Two Conference Presentations: Innovative Strategies for Teaching Financial Accounting in a College Setting (co-presented with Randy Nicholls) and Intro to Accounting: Smarties Activity

Each year, a jury comprised of members from the Recognition of Scholarly Activity committee selects the recipient from applications submitted by faculty members. Applications are assessed on innovation, creativity, originality, influence, acclaim and breadth of dissemination. In 2006, RDC and the Faculty Association created an annual fund of $10,000 to recognize significant scholarly undertakings by faculty members.
