Graduate students Jason Barkeloo and Andrew Jacobs have been selected as the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) Outstanding Teaching Assistants in physics at Miami University.
Michael Pechan, chair and professor of physics, presented each winner with a certificate of achievement and a gift membership to AAPT during the physics department's awards ceremony April 25.
“Jason and Andrew did outstanding work as the sole instructors in our calculus-based and algebra-based introductory laboratory courses. Their student evaluations were uniformly excellent,” said Pechan. “Both Jason and Andrew distinguished themselves in leadership and administrative maturity.”
AAPT is the world leader in promoting physics education. Each year the association recognizes outstanding teaching assistants and grants them a one-year gift membership.
