Engineering TA wins 2013 teaching award
Industrial and systems engineering PhD student Junbo Son received the UW-Madison fall 2013 Early Excellence in Teaching Award. The campus-wide award recognizes outstanding and inspirational performance on the part of teaching assistants with fewer than four semesters of teaching experience. Son, a teaching assistant in ISyE 510, Facilities Planning, enjoys being a TA. “I loved the face-to-face interaction with students,” he says. Planning a career in academia, Son believes this award signifies a major step toward realizing that dream.
