Chelsea Wood receives UW Distinguished Teaching Award

SAFS professor Chelsea Wood has been awarded the University of Washington’s Distinguished Teaching Award, given annually to seven recipients for mastery of the subject matter; enthusiasm and innovation in the teaching and learning process; ability to engage students both within and outside the classroom; ability to inspire independent and original thinking in students and to stimulate students to do creative work; and innovations in course and curriculum design.

SAFS includes a disproportionately large number of recipients of the Distinguished Teaching Award, which is a recognition of the outstanding teaching in the School. Past SAFS recipients of the award are Andre Punt, Julia Parrish, Ted Pietsch, Thomas Quinn, and Loveday Conquest.
