Professor Ada Jaarsma

Ada Jaarsma is Associate Professor of Philosophy in the Department of Humanities at Mount Royal University. A recipient of the MRU Distinguished Faculty Award, Dr. Jaarsma is increasingly interested in the connections between how we teach and what we teach. With the support of a Teaching & Learning Inquiry Grant from the Academic Development Centre at MRU, she developed a research project with two MRU students that explores these connections in the context of Philosophy.
