Teaching Innovators

At least once every year, we award a handful of ABLConnect Teaching Innovator Prizes to faculty members and graduate student instructors whose teaching demonstrates a conscious effort to reach solid academic goals while challenging and engaging students in thoughtful, creative, or interesting ways.  Recipients are awarded an honorarium and the opportunity to film a testimonial about their activity.  Below are their interviews where they describe their innovative activity.
