The Teaching Effectiveness Award honors a small number of outstanding graduate student instructors each year who have made a significant contribution to teaching and learning in their departments through identifying and responding to a problem they have encountered in a class, laboratory, or section they have taught. Their contributions are documented in one-page essays, accessible here by the general academic area in which each GSI taught. (Their departments are also noted below.)

Additionally, the essays may be browsed by teaching-and-learning topic via the GSI Teaching Ideas page in the GSI Online Library.

Academic Areas:
