PhD Candidate AnneMarie Dorland Wins the 2017 SSHRC Storytellers Engagement Prize

CMF's PhD candidate AnneMarie Dorland, a Finalist of this year's #SSHRCStorytellers is the winner of the competition's 2017 Engagement Prize!

The award was evaluated by the fellow storytellers and the judges, and is given to the Top 25 Storyteller who best connects social sciences research and their own research study with the larger community. AnneMarie was selected based on her work connecting the Doing Design Thinking study with the University itself (through blog posts, guest posts for UToday and twitter engagement) and with the classroom (by integrating the findings from the study into teaching in COMS 383, and by using the SSHRC Storytellers videos as teaching tools in the classroom). 

For more information, read AnneMarie's Storify post about the engagement her blog ( which outlines the engagement efforts. Also, look for her contribution in an upcoming article in UToday about the lessons she learned from being a SSHRC Top 25 Storyteller.

Congratulations AnneMarie!
