Biology’s outstanding teacher-scholars were recognized by three nominations for the CLAS Teacher of the Year competition. Drs. Brad Barbazuk, Keith Choe, and Christine Davis were all nominated, which in itself is a singular honor. Among this stiff competition (which also included excellent teachers from many other departments in CLAS), Dr. Davis was awarded a 2017-2018 College Teaching Award. Among her many other accomplishments, Dr. Davis has pioneered (along with Dr. Alice Harmon) the Learning Assistants program that has transformed one of our foundational courses, BSC 2011. Moreover, Dr. Davis has the distinction of being the sole CLAS nominee for the university-wide competition, administered by the Office of Academic Affairs. Congratulations on this well deserved distinction and good luck in the UF competition, Christine!!!
