School faculty and lecturers honored for teaching excellence

January 27, 2015

CoTE honoreesIn January, the School’s Committee on Teaching Excellence (CoTE) honored UC Berkeley School of Public Health educators who received high student evaluation marks for their instruction during the Spring 2014 semester. To receive the award, the faculty members or lecturers were required to have taught a course with an enrollment of five or more students that included an evaluation of student performance through an exam, project, or other assignment. The instructors had to receive an average of 6 or higher on their evaluations.

CoTE was established by the Faculty Council in May 2013. One of the committee’s charges was to establish a forum for annual recognition of School of Public Health faculty members and lecturers for teaching excellence. Recognition will take place each semester.

“Effective teaching is among our most important responsibilities,” said Lisa Barcellos, associate professor and CoTE chair. “It’s central to our School’s mission to train both current and future members of the public health workforce, and to develop diverse leaders for professional and research careers.”
