The College of Engineering recently awarded its teaching Award for Instructor Excellence to six faculty members. The award is given to professors who make significant contributions to the early years of a student’s journey through quality instruction in entry-level engineering courses.
The Award for Instructor Excellence also includes a $4,500 one-time cash award, and is open to all full-time LSU engineering instructors or faculty at the rank of assistant professor or higher. This year’s recipients are:
Petroleum engineering alumnus Harry Longwell established the Dean’s Fund for Instructor Excellence to enhance the quality of instruction in entry-level courses in engineering disciplines.
The appointed selection committee used student success rates, departmental support and teaching philosophy as some of the metrics to evaluate this year’s recipients. The winner for students’ choice was selected through an online voting process.
