Teaching Innovation Awards

2016-Teaching-Award-winners

Recipients of the 2016 Teaching Innovation Awards were (l-r) Dr. Amy Herring (BIOS), Dr. Howard Weinberg (ESE), Dr. Geni Eng (HB), Dr. Brian Pence (EPID) at top, Amanda Holliday (NUTR) at bottom, Dr. Anna Schenck (PHLP), Aimee McHale Wayling (HPM) and Dr. Christine Tucker (MCH).

As part of Celebrate Teaching All Year!, the student-nominated Teaching Awards honor faculty members who inspire students; enhance student learning through creative, engaging and innovative teaching methods; and/or support student success in the classroom and student growth as public health professionals.

The teaching innovation initiative developed out of the School’s SPH2020 efforts and through a teaching and learning task force held at the School in 2011. The task force had recommended identification, encouragement and reward of high-quality teaching; enhanced technology and applications for teaching and learning; and identification and support of faculty members who are early adopters of curriculum innovation.

A $1,000 prize is intended to help each winner advance his or her educational development in teaching and learning.
