We are excited to share the wonderful news that Principal Lecturer Linda Martin-Morris has won a 2016 Distinguished Teaching Award! Linda devotes an extraordinary amount of her life to her students and they appreciate it deeply. Even in her largest classes, Linda takes the time to get to know every student personally. She has had a lifelong impact on thousands of students over the decades.
In addition to the outstanding experience that Linda provides for her students, she has also:
1) pioneered flipped classrooms (and for that was nominated for a Distinguished Teaching Award for Innovation with Technology)
2) ported her beloved BIOL 100 to the UW in the High Schools Program, serving high schoolers and their teachers in rural Washington
3) served as the faculty mentor for the Tri-Beta Biology Honors Society, and
4) chaired Biology’s Diversity Committee
Congratulations Linda! Mark your calendars for the afternoon of 9 June, when Linda will receive her Distinguished Teaching Award (exact time and location TBD)
