09 Mar 2009    

Carol Easley is one of three CEHS faculty who will receive the College Distinguished Teaching Award 2009 at the University Honors Convocation at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 26, 2009. A total of fifteen faculty members from across campus will be given the honor, and each receives a $1,000 cash award through funds provided by the Nebraska Legislature.

The Distinguished Teaching Award is given annually by the University of Nebraska to recognize up to three members of the College of Education and Human Sciences faculty who have demonstrated distinguished teaching. Nominees of the Distinguished Teaching Award demonstrate the qualities of a “model teacher” as embodied by two criteria. First, the model teacher is one to whom colleagues would send their students to observe and emulate if their students had to follow in the footsteps of only one teacher. Second, to be eligible for the award the nominee must have at least three years teaching experience in the College of Education and Human Sciences at the University of Nebraska.

Carol Easley has served as Senior Lecturer in TCD since January 2005. From 1997 to 2003 Carol was manager of the Textile Testing Service in TCD, no longer in operation. Carol is a TCD alum, and received both her undergraduate and graduate degrees here at UNL. Consistently one of the most highly rated TCD faculty in student evaluations, Carol is currently responsible for teaching TXCD 206 Textiles and TXCD 212 Product Development I. In addition Carol mentors UCARE students, leads student groups to the Dallas and Kansas City Career Days, and is a member of the International Textile and Apparel Association. Carol is a past recipient of the CEHS Outstanding Lecturer Award for excellence in classroom teaching (2007) and last Fall received the UNL 20-Year Service Award.
