LYNES EMPLOYS MULTIPLE TEACHING STRATEGIES TO HELP STUDENTS
Alana Lynes, a graduate student who serves as a teaching assistant in an upper-level genetics laboratory, devotes four to six hours per week to individual tutoring and review sessions, far exceeding the offerings of any past or present teaching assistant in the department. In these help sessions, Lynes employs multiple teaching strategies to address the unique learning styles that exist among her students.
In recognition of her dedication to teaching, Lynes was named a recipient of a 2007-2008 Teaching Excellence Award for graduate teaching assistant.
This award is given to graduate students in recognition of outstanding teaching. Recipients are honored with a trophy and a $1,000 prize.
