The Georgia Tech School of Biology is pleased to announce that three of our faculty won campus-wide teaching awards this year. Dr. Jennifer Leavey is the recipient of the 2012 Class of 1940 W. Roane Beard Outstanding Teacher award. This award recognizes extraordinary efforts in teaching, inspiration transmitted to students, direct impact and involvement with students, intellectual integrity and scholarship, and impact on post-graduate success of students. Dr. Linda Green is the recipient of the CETL Undergraduate Educator Award. This award recognizes teaching excellence in large classes, impact on multiple diverse student populations, educational innovations, educational outreach beyond the classroom and a passion for teaching and learning. Dr. Cara Gormally will be receiving the 2012 Innovation in Co-Curricular Education Award. This award is given to faculty who increase student learning outside the traditional curriculum and help Georgia Tech achieve its strategic goal of graduating global citizens who can contribute to all sectors of society. Dr. Cara Gormally was nominated in particular to recognize her collaborations with the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and the Piedmont Park Conservancy in her Honors Biological Principles and Honors Organismal Biology laboratory courses. Congratulations!
