Associate Professor Erin Johnson has been awarded the 2022 Hubbard-Walder Award at the University of Iowa for her excellence in teaching and contributions to curriculum. The award carries a $1,000 honorarium.
Johnson, who teaches within the Department of Management and Entrepreneurship at the Tippie College of Business, is a versatile instructor who teaches in both the undergraduate and MBA programs, in-person and online, and in multiple content areas.
She is an innovator who is dedicated to providing students hands-on experiences that extend far beyond traditional classroom teaching. For example, in her international business environment course she has developed a series of successful experiential projects, including a six-week virtual collaboration with students in Kosovo. She also introduced a project in which students develop a podcast investigating how to foster greater cultural intelligence without physically studying abroad.
She has served as director of undergraduate studies and has contributed to both undergraduate and MBA curriculum development. She received the Collegiate Teaching Award in 2021 and has twice been recognized with Tippie’s Innovation in Teaching Award.
