About the Awards
A few years ago, funds were identified to further recognize excellence in teaching at Georgia Tech. Some of these funds are used to reward faculty members with exceptional scores and response rates on the Course-Instructor Opinion Survey (CIOS). A maximum of 40 awards are given out each year. The proportion of “small” classes and “large” classes that qualify are based on the proportion of those classes in the GT catalog for the past three years.
Courses under consideration for this award were taught during Fall 2017and Spring 2018. The criteria for selection for the award included a CIOS response rate of 85% and above for Fall and/or Spring semesters and: The top 12 rankings (ties broken by response rate) of a class size of at least 40 students with a CIOS score for the question which reads “Overall, this instructor is an effective teacher” of at least 4.9; and The top 28 rankings (ties broken by response rate) of a class size of at least 15 students and a CIOS score for the same question of at least 4.9, or a 5 (or greater) credit course with a size of at least 10 and a CIOS score for the same question of at least 4.9.
