Hodges recognized for excellence in teachingPublished Jan 27, 2020
Dr. Amy Hodges, an instructional assistant professor of English in the Liberal Arts Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar, has been named recipient of the Texas A&M Provost Academic Professional Track Faculty Teaching Excellence Award.
The award recognizes Hodges's excellence as a classroom teacher and her many outstanding contributions to the teaching and learning community at Texas A&M at Qatar.
“I’m honored to receive the Provost Academic Professional Track Faculty Teaching Excellence Award," Hodges said, "because I have worked very hard for the past three and a half years to help our students connect their abilities as engineers with their abilities as writers. I think that this award and Texas A&M at Qatar's support of my nomination speaks volumes about the importance of writing and communication in educating engineers who are also global citizens. I am very grateful to the many students, alumni, industry representatives, staff, and faculty members who have contributed to my technical and business writing courses at Texas A&M at Qatar. I teach writing because I believe a better world is a paragraph away, and I am proud of my achievements in inspiring my students to build that world in the coming years."
Hodges was one of 10 faculty members at Texas A&M and its branch campus in Qatar who received the award.
