Dr. Jennifer Mather joined the University of Lethbridge in 1985 as a psychology professor with expertise in human sensory perception and animal behaviour. Over the past three decades, Mather has become a sought-after expert on the octopus and a dedicated professor who continually demonstrates that students and their education are her top priorities. A believer in learning by doing, she has directed more than 130 applied studies and 30 independent studies. She demonstrates the lifelong learning she wants to foster in her students through her commitment to refining her own teaching. She has shared her knowledge through presentations to colleagues and at teaching conferences, and by publishing articles on her teaching research.

Described as an inspiring teacher with an innovative approach to pedagogy, the University of Lethbridge is proud to bestow upon Dr. Jennifer Mather the 2017 Distinguished Teaching Award.
