Center for Teaching and Learning Honors Sciences Faculty for Excellence

February 14, 2023 | Atlanta, GA

Over 15 faculty from the College of Sciences have been recognized for their teaching excellence by Georgia Tech’s Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) in the Fall 2022 Course Instructor Opinion Survey (CIOS).

Using optional feedback from students, the survey serves to celebrate instructors who exhibit exceptional respect and concern for students, ability to stimulate interest in the subject matter of the course, and enthusiasm for course content.

Four College of Sciences faculty have won the Student Recognition of Excellence in Teaching: CIOS Awards, while 14 faculty have been named to the Student Recognition of Excellence in Teaching: Class of 1934 CIOS Honor Roll for Fall 2022. 

“To be named as a Student Recognition of Excellence in Teaching awardee, or appearing on the honor roll, is a significant accomplishment for our faculty,” shared David Collard, professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry and senior associate dean in the College of Sciences. “Those who are recognized in this way have made strong connections with their students, both in lecture courses and in our instructional laboratories. I imagine that these are the faculty that their students will fondly remember long after graduation.”
