ChE Graduate Students Recognized for Excellence in Teaching

Two Chemical Engineering Ph.D. students were recognized today by the Princeton Engineering Council (E-Council) for excellence in teaching in Fall 2008 courses, as Assistants in Instruction (AIs). Rich Baliban received the award for his work in the senior-level ChE 442, “Design, Synthesis, and Optimization of Chemical Processes”, while Bill Holloway received the award for his work in the sophomore-level ChE 245, “Introduction to Chemical Engineering Principles”. Recipients of the “Excellence in Teaching” Awards are nominated by students taught, and selected by the student-run E-Council for “their ability to present the course material in a clear and effective manner, their responsiveness to student needs, their concern for student learning, and their innovative and creative teaching methods.” The number of awards granted in a given semester to members of each department is not predetermined; of the four graduate student recipients in this round of awards, two were from Chemical Engineering.
