September 29, 2017

Amanda Simpson, Program Manager of IT and Professional Studies, and Steve Thompson, 2017 Teaching Excellence Award winner

Steve Thompson has been a Project Management instructor (in IT and Professional Studies) for the last 12 years, and has been instrumental in the development of the Project Management Fundamentals course content.

As of this term, he has now taught 2,000 students in the Project Management Fundamentals course alone.

He’s also developed a reputation for always putting his students first — finding ways to adapt his teaching methods to best reach them, and regularly updating content to ensure it’s relevant and easy to follow.

As a winner of the 2017 Teaching Excellence Award, a nominator commented that “Steve further enriches the learning for students by drawing on his vast experience leading and working in project teams.”

Thompson holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) designation from the Project Management Institute, and has served on the board for PMI’s Manitoba chapter of which he is still a member. He graduated from ConEd’s Digital A/V Production program in 2010.
