Jennifer Brown - Teaching Awards Winner - Learning and Teaching - University of Canterbury - New Zealand

Professor Jennifer Brown - UC Teaching Award Winner 2014

School of Mathematics and Statistics

Nominated by Carl Scarrott, Learning and Teaching Committee, School of Mathematics and Statistics

A colleague once said, “The School would not be where it is today without you.” When I look back at what we had in statistics to what we have today (international leaders in statistics education), I feel very proud.

My role in student learning is to enable. The students have their own personal learning journey; I simply provide the map to assist them. I commit myself to enabling student learning, and students respond by committing themselves to their own development. This is the most satisfying part of my job.

Statistics is a part of our lives. My contribution to statistics education both here at UC and internationally is that we have students who are ready for the challenges ahead. They are open to fresh ideas, they are equipped with a good set of survival skills and they have a strong base of statistical knowledge to rest on.
