Blended Learning Leaders Receive Campus Teaching Awards

Mon March 6, 2017

We are proud to announce that two alumni and a current member of our Faculty Engagement’s blended learning programs have been awarded campus teaching awards.

Stephen Quintana, a professor with the School of Education’s Counseling Psychology department, was awarded the Chancellor’s Inclusive Excellence Award. An alumni of our first Blend@UW session in 2013, Quintana was one of only two recipients of the award that recognizes achievements in diversity and inclusion.

Another Blend@UW 2013 participant, Cathy Middlecamp, received the Emil Steiger Teaching Award. The professor with the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies won the award that was created in 1958 to recognize excellence in teaching.

Stephen Young, a current Blended Learning Fellow and assistant professor with the College of Letters & Science’s Geography department, won one of the Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards.

“In addition to providing support during a Blend@UW session or a Blended Learning Fellowship Program term, we are committed to building a community of leaders around blended learning,” stated Timmo Dugdale, program manager of the blended learning initiatives. “Many of our past participants continue to stay engaged in blended learning efforts on campus, and we are happy to see their commitment to teaching being recognized.”

The full list of current and past Blend@UW participants and Blended Learning Fellows are available with contact information on the Blended Learning Toolkit that also includes tutorials, resources and examples about blended learning and how to apply it to a course. Or join the community by applying for the Blend@UW summer sessions by May 5, 2017.
