Dr. Sanne Unger, assistant professor in the College of Arts and Sciences, was selected 2016 Faculty Member of the Year by the deans based on nominations from the faculty.
Unger wants her students to not simply know the information in her courses, but to be able to generate new knowledge on their own. “I put a lot of effort into my teaching and my relationships with my students and my colleagues,” she said.
Unger has embraced Lynn’s iPad-powered learning and has become one of the most advanced users of this technology, said Dr. Gregg Cox, vice president for academic affairs. “Students say her classes are very engaging, and she uses the iPad to make lessons both timely and relevant.”
