This past Spring term, the New School for Social Research created the Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Award to recognize the teaching efforts of its graduate students.
Students and faculty nominated 35 students for the award. Seven award winners were chosen from the nominees. The winners were lauded for their ability to connect complex topics to students’ lived experiences, provoke interesting and respectful discussion, while creating a dynamic and inclusive learning environment.
The 2015 Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Award winners are:
Malgorzata Bakalarz, Sociology
Martin Fagin, Psychology
Lara-Zuzan Golesorkhi, Politics
Krista Johansson, Philosophy
Abid Khan, Economics
Hannah Knafo, Psychology
Brandon (Biko) Koenig, Politics
The award will be given annually and the winners recognized at the Dean’s Welcome Reception on Thursday, September 24th.
