Robert Verner

Robert Verner strives to be enthusiastic and innovative in his teaching approach and style. As an Open Learning Faculty Member in Mathematics, Bob was an early user of Elluminate web-conferencing software (now Blackboard) to interact with students in his math courses. His use of Blackboard to answer phone calls, providing online visual delivery to deal with course-related questions, improved his weekly contact with students.

Bob values the sharing of resources, knowledge, techniques, and ideas with his fellow faculty to improve teaching of mathematics, and regularly develops new materials. He brings a concepts-focused approach and an enthusiasm for teaching and learning that his colleagues find infectious and inspiring.
