Elliot Lifson, Professor of Practice and Desautels Faculty Advisory Board member at McGill University, was honoured for teaching excellence at the university’s Desautels Faculty of Management Convocation ceremony last week.
Also honoured for teaching excellence was Faculty Lecturer Amanda Abrams.
During the ceremony, Lifson received the inaugural Morty Yalovsky Distinguished Teaching Award.
“[Lifson] has been sharing his expertise in the area of Strategy & Organization at Desautels since 2005,” says a McGill statement. “Described by his graduate students as engaging, humble, and extremely knowledgeable, Elliot is a strong believer in integrating industry expertise with classroom theory. His students always appreciate the care put into his lectures, which incorporate relevant case studies and guest speakers regularly.”
Abrams received the inaugural Fetherstonhaugh Family Foundation Distinguished Teaching Award, for “creating stimulating and interactive presentations linked to real-world situations, as well as for her skill in encouraging classroom participation.”
