IAS faculty member and GWSS faculty coordinator Julie Shayne has received the Distinguished Teaching Award for 2019. The Distinguished Teaching Award is given annually to seven faculty members: five from the Seattle campus and one each from UW Bothell and UW Tacoma. Recipients are chosen based on a variety of criteria, including mastery of the subject matter; enthusiasm and innovation in the teaching and learning process; ability to engage students both within and outside the classroom; ability to inspire independent and original thinking in students and to stimulate students to do creative work; and innovations in course and curriculum design. The Distinguished Teaching Award was established in Seattle in 1970 and in Bothell and Tacoma in 1995.
