STC Teaching Award Winners

The STC Teaching Award

The STC Teaching Award will be given every fall and spring semester to recognize the exceptional teachers of these courses. The process for determining the winner of the STC Teaching Award was developed by the CTE’s undergraduate advisory board. The winner is selected by a committee composed of a current college magister, a former Brown Teaching Award winner and a member of the Center for Teaching Excellence’s undergraduate advisory board. Selection criteria are based on a class observation completed by an Academic Fellow from the residential colleges, a review of instructional materials, and student evaluations. Every year the fall and spring semester awards will be given to the winners at the CTE's annual University Awards Ceremony in April.
