Posted 4/29/20102010 William F. Hodges Teaching Assistant Award Winners : Mary Baldwin and Phil Ko.
William Hodges was an undergraduate and a graduate student at Vanderbilt who received his doctorate in 1967. He subsequently went to the University of Colorado where he ultimately became a Full Professor and Director of Graduate Studies. He was well known for his research on the psychological impact of divorce, but he was also recognized as a great teacher. After his untimely death in 1992, family and friends established the William F. Hodges Teaching Assistant Award at Vanderbilt to honor outstanding teaching assistants in the Department of Psychology. In some years, winners of the Hodges Award are recognized for singular achievement in one particular TA assignment. This year, we recognize two individuals who have been outstanding TA's year after year. Both of these individuals are people we have turned to first in filling many of our most challenging TA assignments. Both are people that faculty have asked for explicitly to be TA's in their classes. Both have received excellent course evaluations from students and faculty year after year. This year's co-winners of the William F. Hodges Teaching Assistant Award are Mary Baldwin and Phil Ko.
