Combiths was recognized by The Center for Teaching & Learning / Division of Faculty Advancement and Student
Success for demonstrating exceptional agility and dedication in transitioning his courses to the virtual environment during Spring 2020.
This is what the selection committee had to say about Mr. Combiths:
“Mr. Combiths demonstrated exceptional empathy for the challenges facing students in the move to virtual and used his course as a space where students could express and address challenges to their learning. He also adapted his assignments to model what would have been real-world clinical skills in an online environment using hypothetical examples. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, he reimagined his traditional high-stakes, high-stress cumulative final examination and redeveloped it as an applied assessment that allowed students to demonstrate their knowledge in an equally effective but less stressful format.”
Congratulations and Thank you for working with our students during this unprecedented time!
