The Teaching Effectiveness Award honors a small number of outstanding graduate student instructors each year who have made a significant contribution to teaching and learning in their departments through identifying and responding to a problem they have encountered in a class, laboratory, or section they have taught. Their contributions are documented in one-page essays, accessible here by the department in which each GSI taught. Additional details can be found here.
