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.
For the second time in three years, students have rated Susan Burns one of the best teachers at Georgia Tech. As a result, Burns will receive the Class of 1940 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award.
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.
