Prof. Wu: Winner of Inaugural Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching in Physics
On August 25th, at the annual Physics Department Picnic, Prof. Ying K. Wu was awarded the first ever Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching. The Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching was created to recognize outstanding instruction of a core graduate physics course. The recipient of this award is selected by graduate students, and it honors an instructor who demonstrates exceptional teaching skills in the classroom as well as an eagerness to help students gain a deeper understanding of the course material outside the classroom. The graduate students were very happy to award this to Prof. Wu, who went out of his way to ensure that his students got as much out of his Electrodynamics course as possible.
