2019-2020 DTA Winners

Despite their experience and expertise, winners of the 2019-2020 awards navigated new teaching terrain. They learned to improvise and to be agile during varied phases of the pandemic. They learned that technology offered opportunities to connect with students at a distance as never before, and that it also had its limits. And they continued to learn the value of engagement and inclusivity regardless of their teaching format. FInally, they learned to grow as teachers in spite of, and because of the challenges they faced.

Please watch interviews with DTA winners: Dolly Chugh, Stern School of Business, Kenneth Egol, Grossman School of Medicine, Troy McKenzie, School of Law, and Stephen Duncombe, Gallatin School of Individualized Study, as they discuss the following questions.
