Brandeis Prize for Excellence in Teaching
The Louis Dembitz Brandeis Prize for Excellence in Teaching honors an individual for his or her outstanding teaching.
The award, which carries a stipend of $2,500, is presented annually at the April faculty meeting.
All undergraduates are invited to submit nominations. The recipient is selected by the Dean of Arts and Sciences upon the recommendation of a committee consisting of three faculty, including previous Teaching Prize recipients, in consultation with the Senior Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education. Decisions are based on nomination letters, teaching evaluations, Faculty Activity Reports and CVs. Nominations are due by March 12, 2021.
Antonella Di Lillo
Associate Professor of Computer Science
- "I have never had another professor who can make a student understand the material as elegantly and brilliantly as she does. She has such a perfect understanding of not only the content she teaches, but also of how students' brains work. So many times she has explained very complicated and non-trivial concepts in a way that makes them seem intuitive."
- "She is a tough grader and has high expectations but is always willing to have a conversation on how to move forward."
- "I walked into every single class very excitedly looking forward to learning something new, cool, and applicable to the real world!"
