Past Teaching Award Recipients

2013 Recipient

Lee Thompson
Case Western Reserve University

Professors often set goals such as creating a connected classroom environment, being accessible to students, and stimulating intellectual discussions. Lee Thompson is a role model to follow, an outstanding professor who has accomplished not only the aforementioned items, and so much more. Thompson has taught a first-year seminar with the topic "Is the mind what the brain does?" for several years. Her students consistently give the course extremely high rankings, allowing Thompson to be one of the best-of-the-best at her institution. She seamlessly intertwines academic topics with out-of-class experiences, allowing every student to connect with the material regardless of learning style. It is Lee's ability to teach her students academic writing, critical thinking, and analytical skills while still making her course interactive and enjoyable that makes her a truly standout professor.
