Erika Bsumek wins President’s Associates Teaching Excellence Award
Prof. Erika M. Bsumek

Please join the History Department in congratulating Professor Erika M. Bsumek, who has been awarded the President’s Associates Teaching Excellence Award, one of two faculty members in the College of Liberal Arts to be so honored this year. Dr. Bsumek and the other honorees will be recognized at a dinner hosted by President Fenves this spring.
 
Bsumek has an "outstanding record of teaching, and she has been especially active in the areas of pedagogical innovation and the use of technology in the classroom," notes Dr. Jacqueline Jones, Chair of the History Department and Walter Prescott Webb Chair in History and Ideas/Mastin Gentry White Professor of Southern History.

Here is a description of the award:
 
"Each year, the President’s Associates Teaching Excellence Awards recognize great teaching of undergraduates in the core curriculum. These recipients are UT Austin’s educational innovators whose commitment and performance not only instruct, but inspire. These awards are made possible by contributions from friends of the university who are committed to the quality of our educational programs – a group of people known as the President’s Associates.
 
The President’s Associates Teaching Excellence Award recognizes excellence in undergraduate education in the core curriculum (including the signature courses). Well-qualified candidates will also have a demonstrated record of engagement with curriculum reform and educational innovation."
 
Congratulations, Erika!
