Manuela Reekie is the Associate Dean for the Faculty of Health and Social Development – Teaching & Learning, and a tenured Professor of Teaching in the School of Nursing. She has clinical background experience in pediatric nursing. Her current focus is on initiatives related to teaching and learning, as well as educational leadership.
Manuela has taught across all four years of the BSN program. She has also taught at the Graduate level. In the classroom setting Manuela has taught in several areas including: teaching and learning, families in health and illness, leadership, relational practice, professional practice and child health. Manuela has also taught in the foundational clinical practice setting and has supervised students in the preceptorship model.
Foundational to Manuela’s teaching philosophy are contemporary pedagogies that require learners to be active participants, that recognize the importance of the interpersonal connections between teacher, student, and the material that is covered, and that nurture and create a learning environment where teachers act as facilitators of learning rather than gatekeepers of knowledge. The notion that learning is life-long, and where the focus of teaching is on the journey rather than on the destination.
“Each nurse educator’s pedagogy underpins their understanding of and approach to teaching and learning, regardless of whether this has been reflected upon or articulated.”
