We share the very sad news that Professor Emeritus David Hunt passed away on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at Toronto General Hospital at the age of 93. Professor Hunt had a stellar and lengthy career at OISE marked by exceptional teaching and scholarship.
He was a remarkable friend to so many of us during his long career at OISE. The David E. Hunt Award for Excellence in Graduate Education was established as a testimony to his 50 years of remarkable graduate student mentorship.
He was a colleagues’ colleague who was a tireless supporter of the work of others. Professor Hunt was a genuine lifelong learner who reached early prominence with his more quantitative work on matching learning models in the late 1960’s. At OISE, he turned to his more qualitative work on the importance of reflective practice that has contributed so much to improved educational practice.
