Dr. Sam Gosling selected as new member of UT's Academy of Distinguished Teachers
Posted: April 14, 2014
Congratulations to Dr. Gosling for being selected as one of six new members of the Academy of Distinguished Teachers - the most elite teaching award at The University of Texas.
Established in 1995, the Academy of Distinguished Teachers is one of the first associations of its kind in the nation. Each year, new members of the Academy are selected through a rigorous evaluation process. Deans of colleges and schools annually nominate faculty for membership, and a committee that includes members of the Academy, students, and other faculty review the nominations and recommend a slate of honorees to the provost, who makes the final selections. Honorees are awarded the title University Distinguished Teaching Professor and serve for the duration of their tenure at The University of Texas at Austin.
Comprising approximately 5% of the tenured faculty in the university, the Academy provides leadership in improving the quality and depth of the undergraduate experience. Members of the Academy advise the president and provost on matters related to the university’s instructional mission; participate in seminars, colloquia, and workshops on teaching effectiveness; and serve as mentors to new faculty.
