Biology Excellence in Teaching Award (BETA)

The nominee is an individual who motivates students to learn through meaningful and dynamic curricula, through effective traditional pedagogy or novel teaching methods. The nominee should demonstrate a deep knowledge of their field and commitment to the department and university. She or he should have an above average commitment to students, in class or lab and beyond, displaying a real interest in their academic and personal development. The nominee may have shown excellence and commitment to teaching in the previous academic year alone, or may be recognized for valuable long term contributions that seem to be overlooked by existing awards (DSC, Barnes, Alumni), hence it may take a longer view of service to the undergraduate and graduate community in the Department of Biology.
