Raji Baradwaj recognized for excellence in teaching

Receives the 2013 Carl Webber Excellence in Teaching award

Raji Baradwaj joined the department's faculty as a Lecturer in 2001, and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2012.  She actively supports a variety of initiatives on campus to enhance student academic success including SI (Supplemental Instruction) and the NSF-funded iCubed@UMBC project.  Most recently, Ms. Baradwaj helped to create UMBC's Math Gym, a laboratory classroom where students have the opportunity to improve their basic mathematical skills.

The Weber award was established in 2006 in memory of Dr. Carl S. Weber, Assistant Professor Emeritus in the UMBC Department of Biological Sciences, as a tribute to his passion for classroom teaching.  The annual award honors a faculty member at UMBC with exceptional dedication to teaching as demonstrated by his or her enthusiasm, up-to-date teaching materials, effective mentoring, community service in the teaching area, approachability, rigorous learning requirements, coherent teaching philosophy and inspirational teaching style.
