Well-deserved kudos to Glynda Hull at the University of California, Berkeley, for her recent Distinguished Teaching award. According to the award website:
"The award, bestowed by the Berkeley Division of the Academic Senate's Committee on Teaching, is the highest honor for instruction given by UC Berkeley. Only 5 percent of those who have taught at the campus since 1959 -- the year the awards began -- have received this award."
The university has put together a really great video documenting the three award winners' approaches to teaching and which is definitely worth watching. In particular, the video showcases Glynda's role in establishing the Digital Underground Storytelling for Youth program, and her continued work in engaging young people in developing a range of technological literacies.
