Linda Maxson, dean of the University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS), has announced six recipients of this year’s CLAS Collegiate Teaching Awards.
The recipients, chosen by the college’s Teaching Awards Committee from nominations by students and colleagues, are Frank Durham, associate professor in the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication; Oguz Durumeric, associate professor in the Department of Mathematics; Richard Mark Heidel, director of bands and associate professor in the School of Music; Russell Larsen, lecturer in the Department of Chemistry; Jerald Moon, professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders; and Ingrid Ukstins Peate, assistant professor in the Department of Geoscience.
The college awarded honorable mentions to Christopher Cheatum, associate professor in the Department of Chemistry; Megan Knight, lecturer in the Department of Rhetoric; Carol MacVey, lecturer in the Department of Theatre Arts; and Ana Rodríguez-Rodríguez, assistant professor in the Department of Spanish & Portuguese.
“These awards are the highest recognition the college gives to faculty for their teaching,” Maxson says. “Their teaching role includes the ways in which they mentor students, innovate in our course offerings, and involve students in research, as well as their hard work and achievements in classroom instruction. I am very pleased to be able to honor the commitment of our Collegiate Teaching Award winners to the college’s academic mission.”
