A belated congratulations is due AOES faculty member Julia Nord who was one of only 8 faculty members to earn the George Mason University 2017 University Teaching Excellence Award. Dr. Nord is a geologist and former AOES undergraduate coordinator with a keen interest in pedagogy. The award recognizes her work in Formative Evaluation for Learning Retention, which are alternatives to high-stakes testing which better support learning retention.
