ECE student wins exceptional teaching award

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Jonathan Eyolfson, an electrical and computer engineering graduate student, is one of just four campus-wide recipients of the 2013 Amit & Meena Chakma Award for Exceptional Teaching by a Student.  Eyolfson, a teaching assistant and instructor for various courses for several years, is noted by his students as having a deep understanding of the material and dedication to teaching. He's described as “a knowledgeable and approachable teaching assistant who really understands our confusion.”

In Eyolfson's nomination letter the course instructor noted his contribution in re-working the format of the course and appreciated the challenging assignments.  “Students came into his sessions confused and left enlightened; I sometimes feel that I understand the material better for seeing him explain it.”

Eyolfson and the other reward award winners will be honoured at spring convocation in June. [Daily Bulletin article]
