Dr. John Westlie, recipient of the Carl F. Willard Distinguished Teacher Award

This semester Dr. John Westlie was chosen to recieve the Car F. Willard Distinguish Teacher Award. On November 8, he delivers the Carl F. Willard Distinguished Teacher Lecture on the William Jewell College campus.

Dr. Westlie’s lecture, “Teaching for Transformation,” explores such issues as “Can our teaching help transform individuals and help them reach their highest potential? How do we use course design and classroom activities to help students bring forward those abilities, already inherent in them, that will not only help them learn but make them better individuals?”

Dr. John Westlie
We celebrate this honor with Dr. Westlie. His positive influence on our students will be missed as will his guidance in our Department as he undertakes new challenges in his retirement from WJC at the end of this academic year.
