Apgar Award for Innovation in Teaching
Every year, the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL) awards the Apgar Award for Innovation in Teaching. Thanks to a generous donation from Mahlon Apgar, IV D'62 and Sarah Tipper Apgar, Tu'11, this gift annually rewards and supports innovative teaching initiatives by early career, non-tenured faculty. The award recognizes existing courses that cross traditional academic boundaries and that are likely to have practical applications in students' lives. Previous awards winners include:
- Professors Maron Greenleaf and Sarah Kelly for "Environmental Justice."
- Professors Kimberly Rogers and Jason Houle for their capstone major course, The Sociological Imagnation
- Professors Eugene Korsunskiy and Peter Robbie for "Senior Design Challenge."
- Dr. Sara Chaney and Dr. Bill Hudenko for "Autism: Science, Story, and Experience."
- Professors Russell Muirhead and David Plunkett for "Current Research in Social/Political Philosophy."
- Professors Deb Nichols and Julie Hruby for "Who Owns the Past?"
