Tags: awards, lyle, teacher effectiveness

Doctoral student Angela Lyle has been selected for an Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award for 2016, for her work in the secondary history/social science program. Lyle is in SOE’s Educational Studies program, working on a doctorate in administration and policy.

Each year, up to 20 graduate students are selected for the award, to “recognize the efforts and accomplishments of Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) who demonstrate a passion for sharing their knowledge and experience. These young scholars and researchers combine innovative scholarship and research with superb teaching and mentoring. They recognize the humanity of their students as they maintain rigorous intellectual standards and model professional integrity.” To be nominated, students “are expected to demonstrate: exceptional ability and creativity as teachers; continuous growth as teachers; service as outstanding mentors and advisors to their students and colleagues; growth as scholars in the course of their graduate programs.”

Lyle’s advisor, Donald J. Peurach, said, "It is a thrill to see Angela recognized for this award. Her graduate studies have taken her deep into issues of educational leadership, policy, and reform. Still, Angela is, first and foremost, a teacher, and she carries an instructional orientation and disposition into every dimension of her work."

The awards ceremony will be held Thursday, April 14, in the Rackham Amphitheatre. For more information on the awards, see the website.
