Past Winners of the Teacher of the Week

Jack Evans


The Center for Instructional Development and Educational Research (CIDER) recognizes Jack Evans, instructor of Biological Sciences, for his outstanding contributions in empowering incoming students with the tools and knowledge to learn how to become successful students.

Dr. Evans uses a student-centered approach to his teaching. Everything he does is focused on what the students need to know about learning to be a successful student. He is also a gifted advisor, and most days his office is full of students seeking information about all sorts of academic issues that range from academic success, to graduate school or medical school. Judging the academic success of his students, one would conclude his instructional style and strategies are very successful. He is routinely voted as the department's most outstanding professor by graduating seniors.

Dr. Evans received the university's 2011 Alumni Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Academic Advising. Demonstrating his positive effect on student success, one of Dr. Evans' students from the Summer 2012 semester noted, "Dr. Evans' presentation about knowing how to study transformed my approach to learning and improved my success on exams."
