Lorin Jakubek and Nitin Jadhav Win 2010 Archambault Teaching Awards

The Office of Continuing Education has announced 2010 Archambault Teaching Awards, and two of the recipients are from the School of Engineering, Lorin Jakubek and Nitin Jadhav. Engineering was the only school or department with more than one honoree.

Stella Aslibekyan, a graduate student in Bio-Med, is the recipient of the 2010 Reginald D. Archambault Award for Teaching Excellence. Honorable mentions were awarded to Lorin Jakubek, School of Engineering; Daniel Block, Department of English; Erica Moretti, Italian Studies; and to Nitin Jadhav, School of Engineering.

The Reginald D. Archambault Award for Teaching Excellence recognizes, rewards, and promotes excellence in teaching in the Brown University summer programs. The award is named in recognition of Reginald D. Archambault, Professor of Education emeritus, and the inaugural Dean of Summer Studies, 1984 - 1992. Prof. Archambault served as Chair of Brown’s Education Department from 1967 through the early eighties, contributing greatly to the M.A.T. program and developing the Brown Summer High School as a teaching laboratory. He remains dedicated to advancing the craft of pedagogy.

Award recipients are selected based on their ability to influence, motivate and inspire students to learn, as well as their creativity and innovation in the development of curriculum and resources that promote student learning.

Award recipients will be recognized at an Office of Continuing Education Event in spring 2011.
