Ken Brown Wins Top University Teaching Award
Ken Brown, associate professor of management and organizations in the Tippie College, was named as one of four University faculty members to receive the 2009 President and Provost Award for Teaching Excellence in recognition of their years of outstanding teaching.
The award, which is administered by the UI Council on Teaching, was created in 2004 as a University-wide recognition for faculty members who have demonstrated a sustained, high level of teaching excellence.
Brown, who is a Tippie Research Fellow, has taught in the Department of Management and Organizations since 1998. In addition to teaching the large lecture course in Introduction to Management, he works with students outside the classroom on independent or honors studies. He also works with student groups such as Future Business Leaders of America, for which he is currently the advisor, and with other faculty and University committees, with whom he shares expertise gleaned from his research into the motivational forces that influence learning efforts and outcomes.
Brown won the Collegiate Teaching Award in 2007 and was selected by students as Faculty Advisor of the Year in 2008.
