The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning and the Instructional Development Council are pleased to announce the 2017 Student Nominated Teaching Award Winners. Associate Professor Katia Levintova (Democracy and Justice Studies, Global Studies and Political Science) is the winner of the Experienced Teacher Award. Students praise Professor Levintova’s dedication to students and her clear passion for teaching. Her positive attitude and equity-minded approach to teaching promote students’ self-esteem in- and outside of her classroom, and her use of experiential learning draws her students into a rigorous exploration of politics across the globe. Assistant Professor Megan Olson Hunt (Natural and Applied Sciences) is the winner of the Early-Career Award. Her students marvel at her ability to spark a deep interest in statistics and math using real-life case studies and engaging lectures. Her enthusiasm for her field spreads to her students, and she provides extraordinary support to them as unique individuals to promote their success and well-being.
