From: Maureen McDermid & Catriona Misfeldt
Relation: Collaborators in the Critical Thinking Consortium

When Phil came on board from UBC-O, he brought a science background which helped us formulate sample critical challenges for science teachers. His input and expertise were fundamental to the inclusion of the science curriculum into TC2’s critical thinking model. His enthusiasm for science through a critically thoughtful framework, enhanced the teaching of science in many classrooms across BC, Alberta, and Ontario. His sense of humour, practicality, and air of curiosity made him a valuable collaborator and a pleasure to work with.
