Professors of the Year

Inside Higher Ed
November 20th, 2014

Routine. Predictable. Orderly. They’re fine words, ones that convey a certain level of familiarity and comfort. But they don’t describe the ideal learning environment, at least, not for the four professors recognized today as some of the best college instructors in the country.
These veteran teachers of engineering, writing and paleontology opt for words like playful, flexible, even chaotic. There’s noise and movement. A rhythm that has taken years to refine.
The recipients of the 2014 U.S. Professors of the Year award are recognized for their success in teaching and commitment to working with undergraduate students.
“These forward-thinking instructors advocate learning by doing, putting their students in the driver’s seat of their own development,” said John Lippincott, president of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
