Excerpt from jury report: Dr. Sens’ pedagogical innovations include the adoption of flipped classrooms, active learning exercises, learning portfolios, blended learning and team-based learning. All of these point to an instructor who is at the cutting edge of pedagogical innovation in post-secondary education. Capping off this remarkable file is his commitment to leadership in Teaching and Learning within the Department of Political Science at UBC and in the institution more widely. His career path at UBC from post-doctoral fellow to sessional lecturer to senior instructor to Professor of Teaching is an inspiring story, particularly in our contemporary institutional environment.
