- Award for Educational Leadership and Innovation (2014-2015)
In receiving the Award for Educational Leadership and Innovation Professor Asaf Zohar is recognized for his instrumental role in designing and launching an internship program involving third and fourth-year Business Administration students in a variety of field based learning opportunities as well as his vision and influence as the founding director of the Masters of Arts in Sustainability Studies. His commitment to involving numerous academic and community collaborators in his teaching, his leadership work with the Trent Business Council, his publication and knowledge dissemination in the areas of sustainability and education and the meaningful learning opportunities he has enabled for students at the undergraduate and graduate levels are all just a few of the reasons that Prof. Zohar was granted the award.
"I am deeply humbled and honoured to receive this award. For me, it is an opportunity to take stock and acknowledge our shared passion for educational leadership through teaching innovation, rather than individual achievement,” said Dr. Asaf Zohar. “This award is a celebration of Trent’s shared commitment to finding new ways of bringing out the best in our students. In return, they inspire us with a sense of possibility, and invite us to do better. For us at Trent, innovation is the process of improving what we have achieved to date through this ongoing conversation, and revitalizing our ability to fulfill this shared vision and purpose for the future.”
