ECE Faculty Commended for Teaching Excellence

Atlanta, GA

The Georgia Tech Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning named five faculty members from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) as recipients of the 2013 Class of 1934 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award. The faculty members and the courses for which they were honored include:

Magnus Egerstedt, ECE 8823 Networked Control Systems

Francesco Fedele (jointly appointed with ECE; primary appointment in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering), ECE 2025 Introduction to Signal Processing

Mark A. Richards, ECE 2025 Introduction to Signal Processing

George F. Riley, ECE 3090 Software Fundamentals for Engineering Systems

Justin K. Romberg, ECE 6250 Advanced Digital Signal Processing

This award is given to faculty members with exceptional response rates and scores on the Course-Instructor Opinion Survey (CIOS), an instrument that is distributed to students at the conclusion of semester classes. Taking the class size into account, evaluators for this award also look for a robust response rate (85 percent or better) and a high rating on instructor effectiveness.

All five professors had teaching effectiveness scores ranging from 4.8 to 5.0 and evaluation response rates ranging from 88 to 100 percent for the courses that they taught. “We are extremely fortunate to have many gifted teachers in our school,” said Steven W. McLaughlin, Steve W. Chaddick School Chair of ECE. “I am very proud of the dedication and passion that these faculty members have shown in teaching our undergraduate and graduate students.”
