New Winners Announced for the Class of 1940 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award

Forty Georgia Tech instructors were recently awarded the Class of 1940 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award for courses offered in Fall 2017 and Spring 2018.

Established in 2012, the Class of 1940 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award is one of a number of annual recognition initiatives from the Center for Teaching and Learning to honor outstanding faculty. Specifically, the award recognizes faculty members with exceptional scores and response rates on the Course Instructor Opinion Survey (CIOS). The CIOS is completed by students at the end of each semester to provide feedback to instructors about the learning experience in their respective courses.

“Faculty who receive the award often remark what an honor it is, especially since it’s based on students’ feedback about their work in the course,” said Joyce Weinsheimer, director of the Center for Teaching and Learning. “At least 85 percent of their students have taken the time to complete CIOS, and these students highly value the instruction they received. There’s definitely consensus among the students that this person has helped them learn — and that’s always great to hear.”
