Over the last three years, Rebecca has contributed significantly to supporting the implementation of student-centered pedagogies including assessing their effectiveness and positive impact on student learning. She began this journey as a member of the organizing committee for McGill’s Physics Hackathon, an annual event of the Physics Department Outreach Committee. Her passion for helping students drew her to becoming a TEAM mentor where she worked with Professor Nik Provatas on his implementation of a Flipped Classroom approach for an Introductory Electromagnetism physics course, which has ~600 students. In doing so helping him to make it a success. At the same time, Rebecca worked at Building 21 (B21), a student-driven think-tank at McGill, and supported the Blue Fellows throughout their fellowships. Rebecca has also made contributions to teaching at the faculty level and the broader academic community, including presenting at the SALTISE conference.
