Eight professors named "Outstanding Engineering Teachers"

Based on teaching evaluations by students, the College of Engineering honored faculty, lecturers and other staff for Spring 2021.

Eight faculty members from the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics were recognized by the College of Engineering as “Outstanding Engineering Teachers.”

Faculty, lecturers and other staff who received teaching evaluation scores of 4.6 or higher in undergraduate or graduate classes with enrollments of 10 or more and 50 percent or higher response rates made the list. The list is based on student evaluations from courses taught in the College of Engineering in Spring 2021. The teacher evaluation survey included 10 quantitative questions about instruction on a five-point scale. Individual teacher averages were calculated across those measures.

Professors Sally Bane, Gregory Blaisdell, Daniel DeLaurentis, Jonathan Poggie, Timothee Pourpoint, Alexey Shashurin, Carson Slabaugh and Tyler Tallman were on the list.

"With all of the challenges last academic year, seeing eight Aeronautics and Astronautics faculty members recognized for their efforts in the Spring 2021 semester via the student course evaluations shows the dedication these instructors give to their courses," J. William Uhrig and Anastasia Vournas Head of Aeronautics and Astronautics William Crossley said.

An ad that included the list was published Aug. 23 in the Exponent.
