Nominations open for School of Science teaching prizes


The School of Science is seeking nominations for its two annual teaching prizes. The deadline is Friday, Feb. 18.

The Undergraduate Prize recognizes excellence in teaching undergraduate subjects. Nominations are welcome for outstanding teaching not only in the subjects with large enrollments--such as those that satisfy the General Institute Requirements in science--but also in upper-level science subjects with smaller enrollments.

For the Graduate Prize, preference will be given to nominees who teach mainstream subjects in which fundamental principles of the relevant fields are presented. Such courses typically provide the basis for advanced education and research and prepare students for professional careers.

Nominations for both awards may be made by faculty and students to any member of the selection committee. Each nomination should be accompanied by a letter in support of the nomination. Additional letters are welcome.

Members of the committee are Professor Hazel Sive, chair, (sive@wi.mit.edu or Room WI401C), Professor Kip Hodges (kvhodges@mit.edu or Room 54-1120), or Professor Barton Zwiebach (zwiebach@mitlns.mit.edu or Room 6-303).
