Vesna Milosevic-Zdjelar: Instructor
Vesna Milosevic-Zdjelar, former astrophysicist from the National Observatory in Belgrade, Serbia, joined The University of Winnipeg's Physics Department in 2000. In Canada, she obtained a degree in science education, and has made important contributions teaching science courses to non-science and life sciences students, and creating community awareness by initiating science outreach programs. Together with two colleagues, she created a course "Concepts in Science" which became the preferred science course choice for education and arts students at the University of Winnipeg, with enrolment increasing tenfold. Vesna's passion for science education has led to numerous presentations at conferences and symposia for university instructors and science teachers. She teaches a broad range of courses including Astronomy, Concepts in Science, Physics for Life Sciences and Physics of Music.
