Teaching Excellence Award for 2010

We received a Teaching Excellence Award for an English language course offered during 2010 fall semester.

The course that won an award was an elective course in English language conversation for freshmen, and placed 4th in category (courses with class sizes between 25 and 49).

This is the 4th award during the 5 years that we have been eligible. Hokudai gave its first teaching excellence award in 2005. Since then, Noriko and I were in Belgium for 2 years. That leaves 5 years of eligibility. Results from the last of those 5 years (academic 2011) will be announced in spring 2013.

Most of our team -- Nobuyasu Obata, Xin Li, Chifumi Goto, Yuka Wakatsuki, my wife Noriko, Kero, Sirokuro Puppy, and me -- are in the picture below taken during a Christmas party in class.
