McGready and McAttee Receive Awards of Excellence in Online Teaching
John McGready and Britt McAtee were recognized by the Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Center for Teaching and Learning with Technology for excellence in online teaching and teaching assistance, respectively, for the 2004-2005 school year.
McGready, an instructor in the Department of Biostatistics, was recognized for his outstanding teaching for the course “Statistical Reasoning I & II.” He received this same award in 2001. In addition, McGready received the Golden Apple, an annual teaching award voted on by Bloomberg School students, in 2001 and 2004.
McAtee, a PhD-candidate in the division of toxicological sciences in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences, was honored for her work in the course “Environmental Health.”
Excellence in Online Teaching Award winners are selected each year by students enrolled in online courses at the Bloomberg School of Public Health. The students are asked to nominate teachers and assistants who make online learning more effective, intellectually stimulating and enjoyable.
The Center for Teaching and Learning with Technology, formerly known as Distance Education, combines technology and instructional design to help faculty teach and students learn in both online communities and classroom settings.--Kenna Lowe
