AE faculty Dr. Julian Rimoli has been chosen to receive the Class of 1940 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award by the Georgia Tech Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL).
Announcement of the award was made this week but will be formally celebrated in March when CETL holds its annual Celebrating Teaching Day.
The Class of 1940 distinction is one of several awards made annually by CETL to instructors of small and large classes. It is based on the Course Instructor Opinion Surveys (CIOS) that were administered in the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters. A high response rate (85% or greater) and a near-perfect evaluation score are required for consideration. A maximum of 40 awards are made to Georgia Tech faculty annually.
"I take the mission of teaching very seriously, so this honor greatly humbles me," he said.
In November, Rimoli's commitment to the teaching profession was center stage when he served as a keynote speaker for a national education summit, Project Lead-the-Way. He currently holds the Goizueta Junior Faculty Professorship and was selected to receive the Lockheed Dean's Award for Teaching in February of this year.
A native or Argentina, Rimoli earned his doctorate at Caltech.
