Faculty Recognized With Teaching Excellence Awards
Three School of Education faculty were recently honored with a 2005 Creative Teaching Award at the annual Celebration of Teaching Excellence at Duquesne University. Sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE), the Creative Teaching Awards recognize faculty who have implemented and assessed innovative ways of teaching a particular topic or subject matter area.
The winning educators were Dr. Carol Parke, assistant professor in the department of foundations and leadership, Dr. Linda Lengyel, assistant professor in the counseling, psychology and special education program, and Dr. Joe Kush, associate professor in the counseling, psychology and special education department.
The CTE was founded in 1989 at Duquesne University to promote excellence in teaching at all levels, from beginning graduate teaching assistants to senior faculty scholars. Working collaboratively with faculty, the CTE utilizes university resources to create an educational culture that values and rewards teaching for the primary purpose of enhancing student learning.
Founded in 1878, Duquesne is consistently ranked among the nation's top Catholic universities for its award-winning faculty and tradition of academic excellence. Duquesne, a campus of nearly 10,000 graduate and undergraduate students, has been nationally recognized for its academic programs, community service and commitment to sustainability.
