Congratulations to the recipients of the 2021-2022 Teaching Awards in Psychology.

Dr. David Hauser is the recipient of the 2021-2022 Undergraduate Teaching Award in Psychology. The award recognizes outstanding teaching at the undergraduate level. Each year, the DSC in Psychology invites the members (student body at large) to nominate the instructor they feel is most deserving of this award.

Students’ comments on Dr. Hauser:

"His classes and method of teaching is interactive and engaging, he is passionate about his classes and students success."

"Creates a great class environment and does a great job of going beyond in his teaching making sure people understand the content and provides engaging and fun polls as well as videos relating concepts to real life"

"He makes classes engaging and is willing to deal with tough questions from students. He ties his own research into the curriculum well to help further our understanding of the concepts"

"Dr. Hauser has truly gone above and beyond this semester. His lectures were incredible: the content was super interesting and he delivered it in a very engaging way by encouraging questions, making jokes, etc. He is the one professor I feel truly wants to see his students succeed, and he’s done everything in his power to support us. He is an incredibly nice guy, and is the best professor I have had. (He even let us meet his dog!)"

"Amazing at engaging the class for participation, very accommodating for testing and giving students the benefit of the doubt for grading (either a 50% final or a 30% depending on performance on the midterm) would go over midterm grades and revised the exam based on midterm grades. Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about sharing that knowledge."


"He had engaging lectures, encouraged participation, and was always happy to answer questions"
