Two Natural Sciences Faculty Receive 2019 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Awards
David Laude and Alison Norman are recipients of the 2019 University of Texas Regents' Outstanding Teaching Awards.

Two faculty members from The University of Texas at Austin, both from the College of Natural Sciences, have been chosen to receive 2019 Regents' Outstanding Teaching Awards by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System. The recipients are David Laude, a Distinguished Teaching Professor in chemistry, and Alison Norman, associate professor of instruction in computer science.

The awards program is one of the nation's largest monetary teaching recognition programs in higher education, honoring outstanding performance in the classroom and dedication to innovation in undergraduate instruction.

Each of the award's 27 recipients will receive an unrestricted check for $25,000 and will be presented with a certificate and a medallion during the Board of Regents meeting on Aug. 14 at the UT System administration building in Austin.

Nominees undergo a series of rigorous evaluations by students, peer faculty and external reviewers. The review panels consider a range of activities and criteria in their evaluations of a candidate's teaching performance, including classroom expertise, curricula quality, innovative course development and student learning outcomes.

"These educators are dedicated to continually looking for new and better ways to inspire students to learn and succeed," Board of Regents Chairman Kevin Eltife said. "And they're ensuring the next generation, whether they be teachers, scientists or health care providers, is armed with passion and knowledge. Their contributions are immeasurable."

A full list of honorees from all UT System institutions is available here.
