Chemistry Professor receives Okanagan College Teaching Excellence Award
Okanagan College Media Release

DoigeAn engaging teaching style, combined with a passion for embracing technology in the classroom, has earned a Vernon professor Okanagan College’s Teaching Excellence Award.

Dr. Carl Doige, who also volunteers his time as the main organizer of the popular Science in Society Speaker Series, received the award at the College’s Employee Excellence Awards presentation held recently at the Kelowna campus.

Okanagan College established these awards to recognize the many outstanding contributions employees of all kinds make to the development of both the College and the greater community. The awards are to be handed out annually for a wide-range of achievements including innovation, scholarly activity, and service excellence.

As a first- and second-year chemistry professor Doige is dedicated to ensuring his students succeed. He is known for his use of various innovative learner-centred teaching techniques in the classroom, including introducing clicker technology. These hand-held devices allow students to respond instantly, yet anonymously, to various questions Doige poses throughout his lectures.

“The teaching excellence at Okanagan College, combined with strong ties to the local community, is what makes a difference for students attending the Vernon campus,” said Okanagan College President Jim Hamilton.

Doige was one of many employees honoured with an Employee Excellence Award.

Dr. Melissa Munn, who teaches Sociology and Interdisciplinary Studies at both the Vernon and Salmon Arm campuses, also received a Teaching Excellence Award.

Okanagan School of Business Professor Dr. Kyleen Myrah, who founded and continues to mentor students involved in the College-wide SIFE Okanagan program, received the President’s Award.
