Dr. Lafer selected to receive the 2019 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award
Eileen M. Lafer, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Structural Biology has been selected to receive the 2019 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award from The University of Texas System. Congrats Dr. Lafer!
Overall, the System named 27 faculty members from UT’s 14 academic and health institutions to receive the teaching award. They each will receive $25,000 in recognition of their commitment to student success.
Over the last decade, regents have awarded more than $19 million to 700 UT educators for delivering the highest quality of instruction in the classroom, lab, field and online.
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.
Recipients of the 2018 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Awards will be recognized Aug. 9 at a reception held in conjunction with the Board of Regents meeting in Austin.
