2016 marked the inaugural year of MIT’s Teaching with Digital Technology Awards. These awards, co-sponsored by the Office of Digital Learning, the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Education, and the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education, are student-nominated awards for faculty and instructors who have effectively used digital technology to improve teaching and learning at MIT. The awards recognize the faculty for their teaching innovations and give the MIT community the opportunity to learn from their practices.
This year’s (first ever!) awardees are Lorna Gibson (materials science and engineering), Max Goldman & Robert Miller (electrical engineering and computer science), Chris Terman (electrical engineering and computer science), Peter Dourmashkin (physics), and Kurt Fendt (comparative media studies/writing).
