Two members of the University of New Brunswick’s faculty will be recognized at the Fall Convocation Ceremonies with Dr. Allan P. Stuart Awards for Excellence in Teaching.

Jessica Webster, in UNB Fredericton's faculty of nursing, is a senior nursing instructor. Her passion for nursing inspired her to become a teacher, and in 2008, she joined UNB as a nurse clinician – primarily teaching in the clinical setting. In 2015, Ms. Webster took on the role of leading classroom courses as well.

As a teacher, Ms. Webster strives to model both professionalism and approachability with students in all of her interactions. She endeavours to cultivate genuine connections with each student and colleague she meets.

To engage students in learning, Ms. Webster uses several teaching strategies including instant-feedback technology, multimedia platforms and learning management systems. She provides vivid examples from her clinical practice as a perinatal nurse, using case scenarios to help students understand the information through application in a nursing context.

In addition to Ms. Webster’s work in the classroom, for the past four years, she and UNB’s Global Learning and Engagement Coordinator Veronica McGinn have supported and supervised students on a 90-day international internship in Malawi.

Osama El-Temtamy taught in UNB Saint John's faculty of business, receiving generous praise from several of his students – describing him as “polite, approachable, knowledgeable, motivating, and encouraging.”  Many students agreeing that “it is clear that he cares about the success of students.”  

Dr. El-Temtamy received a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of Southwestern Louisiana (1988), a Master of Science in Accounting from the University of New Haven (1991), and his doctorate degree in Economics and Accounting Information Systems from Middle Tennesse State University (1995). 

His credentials include Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Chartered Accountant (CA), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), and Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA).

Before going into teaching, Dr. El-Temtamy worked with PricewaterhouseCoopers, in Toronto, ON as a Manager within the Project Finance and Privatization unit where he gained extended consulting experience ranging from public and private corporations to sovereign governments.

His main research interests include financial analysis and modeling, outsourcing and privatization, corporate finance, internal and external auditing, socioeconomic projects, and accounting information systems.

The Allan P. Stuart Memorial Award for Excellence in Teaching recognizes outstanding teaching on the basis of nominations from students and faculty members at UNB. It is named in honour of Allan Stuart, a respected professor of chemistry from 1946 to 1973, and one of the first recipients of an excellence in teaching award at the university.
