UW Eau Claire professor wins teaching honor

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Two University of Wisconsin System professors and one academic department are being recognized for outstanding achievements in teaching.

The UW System Board of Regents announced Thursday it has selected UW-Oshkosh professor Jennifer Szydlik, UW-Eau Claire professor Paul Thomas and the UW-Platteville biology department for its 18th annual Teaching Excellence Awards.

The system says Szydlik, a math professor, is noted for her unique approach to teaching undergraduate courses for prospective teachers.

Thomas, a physics and astronomy professor, is praised as a demanding instructor known for his enthusiasm and skill at explaining complex topics.

The UW-Platteville biology department is being recognized for improving its curriculum and having top-notch teachers.
