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 year in which each GSI received the TEA. (Please note that essays previous to 2000 are not currently published at this site; these are archived at the GSI Teaching & Resource Center and are available to read in the office.)

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