School faculty and lecturers earn high marks in teaching quality

November 16, 2015

Teaching Excellence award winnersThe School’s Committee on Teaching Excellence (CoTE) recently honored UC Berkeley School of Public Health educators who received high student evaluation marks for their instruction during the spring 2015 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 (out of 7) on their evaluations.

CoTE was established by the School’s 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.

“Our committee is very excited about the teaching excellence we are observing and able to report for our School,” said Lisa Barcellos, professor of epidemiology and CoTE chair. “Our mission in the School as educators is to provide high quality education to our students. We must continue to seek ways to improve and implement innovative strategies to engage our undergraduate and graduate students in learning. We are proud of our many colleagues in the School who are committed to this important mission.”
