Claire Barbetti was recently honored with the Graduate Student Award for Excellence in Teaching at the annual celebration of Teaching Excellence at Duquesne University.
A resident of the South Hills, Barbetti is a graduate student in Duquesne University’s English department in the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts.
Sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE), the award promotes and rewards teaching effectiveness of current graduate students and provides award nominees with training on how to present evidence of teaching excellence.
Barbetti is one of four graduate teaching assistants selected for the award.
The CTE was founded in 1989 at Duquesne University to promote excellence in teaching at all levels, from beginning graduate teaching assistants to senior faculty scholars. Working collaboratively with faculty, the CTE utilizes university resources to create an educational culture that values and rewards teaching for the primary purpose of enhancing student learning.
