Muhannad S. Bakir, John D. Cressler, and Sung Kyu Lim, all faculty members in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, have been chosen to receive the 2016 Class of 1940 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award. 

The Class of 1940 distinction is one of several awards made annually by the Georgia Tech Center for Teaching and Learning to instructors, and it is based on the Course Instructor Opinion Surveys administered in the spring 2016 and fall 2016 semesters. A high response rate (85 percent or greater) and a near-perfect evaluation score are required for consideration.

Bakir, Cressler, Lim, and their colleagues within the College of Engineering and throughout Georgia Tech will be formally recognized when CTL holds its annual Celebrating Teaching Day on March 14.

John Cressler was the recipient of the 2013 Georgia Tech Class of 1934 Distinguished Professor Award.
