Sandra Dwyer, principal senior lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at Georgia State University, and Claire Katz, Associate Dean of Faculties, the Murray and Celeste Fasken Chair in Distinguished Teaching in the Liberal Arts, and a Professor of Philosophy at Texas A&M University, are the winners of the 2019 Prize for Excellence in Philosophy Teaching.
The Prize for Excellence in Philosophy Teaching is sponsored by the American Philosophical Association (APA), the American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT), and the Teaching Philosophy Association (which puts out the journal Teaching Philosophy). The prize was created in 2017 to recognize members of the APA who have had “a profound impact on the student learning of philosophy in undergraduate and/or pre-college settings.”
The prize is $1,000 and a plaque.
The APA’s announcement of the prize is here. Unfortunately, it does not (yet) include quotes from or links to the nomination letters for Professors Dwyer and Katz; I will update this post if they become available. Previous winners of the prize are listed here.
