MadsenCongratulations to Krista Madsen and the BioBlend Team on receiving the McMaster University President's Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teaching and Learning.

Krista is an Assistant Professor with the Department of Kinesiology. Her nominator wrote, "at the heart of Prof. Madsen's teaching approach and philosophy is a sense of shared humanity, where moments of failure and vulnerability are seen as central to the growth, problem-solving, community and creativity of students in her classroom."

The course combines online modules, in-class learning and a laboratory project grounded in a core research question.
