EvCC’s Paul Marshall Wins State Teaching Award
EVERETT, WA – The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges has selected Everett Community College’s Paul Marshall as the winner of the 2010 Anna Sue McNeill Assessment, Teaching, and Learning Award.
Marshall, who has worked at EvCC since 1980, is the college’s Teaching and Learning Cooperative coordinator, working with faculty and staff to strengthen experiences inside and outside of the classroom.
“His dedication to the art of teaching, his commitment to helping faculty develop and improve skills that will allow us all to be better teachers, his respect for the growth process inherent in learning, his personal determination to provide a lasting legacy in the form of the Teaching and Learning Cooperative on our campus has made him one of the most respected and admired members of our institution,” said EvCC Vice President of Instruction Sandra Fowler-Hill.
Marshall introduced the Teaching and Learning Cooperative in 2001, a concept he developed after seeking new challenges in his own career. Through the cooperative, Marshall organizes year-long teaching labs for faculty, staff, and administrators on a variety of topics, such as diversity. He also offers individual faculty support and helps pioneer new technologies in the classroom.
“I do the work I do because I love to do it,” said Marshall, who started at EvCC teaching Human Relations and working as a counselor.
Marshall’s award was presented at the Pacific Northwest Higher Education Assessment, Teaching, and Learning Conference.
