Assistant professor, Dr. stef shuster, has been busy this semester racking up awards. Their first award comes from the editors of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior (Richard Carpiano and Brian C. Kelly). These editors evaluated hundreds of reviews performed during the 2017 calendar year for this journal and considered the following factors in evaluating candidates: quality of constructive content, the number of reviews performed, and punctuality of returned reviews. Dr. shuster’s service to the profession was recognized with this inaugural award for peer reviewing excellence.
Dr. shuster’s second award recognizes their teaching. They received a SAGE Teaching Innovations and Professional Development Award , which allows them to attend the “Using Technology to Improve our Teaching” pre-conference workshop scheduled concurrently with the this year’s American Sociological Association annual conference in Philadelphia. This pre-conference hopes to prepare a “new generation of scholars and leaders in the teaching movement in sociology” to use innovative techniques in teaching. Dr. shuster is one of a few recipients of this award.
Congrats, Dr. shuster!
