Distinguished Teaching Award
Five UC Berkeley faculty have been selected as recipients of the 2023 Distinguished Teaching Award, the campus’s most prestigious honor for teaching. The award recognizes teaching that incites intellectual curiosity in students, engages them thoroughly in the enterprise of learning, and has a lifelong impact. The Academic Senate’s Committee on Teaching has selected:
Laleh Behbehanian, Sociology
Abigail De Kosnik, Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies
Daniel Hoffmann, French
Joshua Hug, Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences
Elisa Tamarkin, English
The extraordinary expertise, curiosity, inclusiveness, and passion of this year’s recipients remind us that excellent teaching runs both deep and broad across Berkeley’s academic landscape.
The recipients were celebrated at a public ceremony on April 26, 2023 in Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center.
