Boston University acknowledges many kinds of excellence in teaching. Some teachers are superb lecturers, others excel in seminar; some are outstanding in working with students in the laboratory, the studio, or the practice room; others turn large classrooms into lively and engaged communities of scholars. The diversity of pedagogical approaches is part of what makes a university intellectually exciting. Rewarding outstanding instructors helps to foster the spirit of discovery that is at the heart of great teaching.
Teaching awards also celebrate the University’s core values. The best University teachers exemplify the connections between creative research, high standards of personal performance, and a love of learning.
