In its second year, a program in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering that helps graduate students become great teachers has expanded, selecting three students and a post-doctoral researcher as Future Faculty Fellows.
Four professors in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering are some of Georgia Tech’s most-effective teachers, according to, perhaps, their most important constituents: the students who sit in their classes.
Kevin Haas will bring new educational strategies to his colleagues in the College of Engineering as part of a new program through the Georgia Tech Center for Teaching and Learning. Haas is among the center’s first Provost Teaching and Learning Fellows, a group of well-respected educators across campus who have demonstrated they are effective teachers and want to help raise the level of teaching across campus.
Georgia Tech’s Faculty Honors Committee has recognized three professors in the School of Civil and Environmental for their impact on students and their interdisciplinary work. The intensely competitive awards went to Lawrence Kahn for his teaching, Ted Russell for his interdisciplinary activities, and Donald Webster for his use of technology to “flip” his Fluid Mechanics and Dynamics course.
