Citation: “Merci pour l’intérêt, le dynamisme et l’originalité manifestés lors de votre enseignement”. This tribute to the relevance, enthusiasm and originality of Dr. Laszlo DeRoth’s teaching appears as part of a certificate signed by the members of the class due to graduate in 1993 from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Montreal. As well as receiving superb ratings from students over almost twenty years of teaching, Laszlo DeRoth has four times been awarded his Faculty’s prize as their most distinguished teacher. Among the many innovative teaching methods he has introduced are the use of case-study methods for large classes and laboratory simulations to replace animal experimentation.

But Dr. DeRoth’s influence goes far beyond his own teaching. As Chair of the Committee for Pedagogical Faculty Development, he helps his colleagues enhance their courses and their teaching skills. As a member of the University of Montreal’s Granting Committee for the Development of University Teaching, he helps colleagues in all Faculties seeking to develop and improve their courses. In extending his leadership to other disciplines and across provincial and national boundaries, he has organized and conducted seminars and symposia on teaching and learning in his own University, in other Canadian universities and in francophone countries in Europe and Africa.
