Aimee Moore Wins Provost’s Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer

Architecture Section Lecturer Aimee Moore (BSARCH '97, MARCH '99) has won a 2016 Provost’s Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer. The award was presented to Moore by Ohio State University Interim Executive Vice President and Provost Bruce McPheron in a surprise ceremony in her “Sustainability in the Built Environment” class in Knowlton Hall on February 24.

Moore was recognized for over a decade’s worth of sustained commitment to the students of the Knowlton School. She has played a central role in the success of the first year experience offerings at the school. It is fitting that her awards presentation took place in ARCH 2200, a course that she created in response to the University’s Energy and the Environment Discovery Theme.

In addition to her dedicate to teaching on the OSU campus, Moore has lead study abroad tours to London, Barcelona, Amsterdam and Rio de Janeiro, as well as the Italy Study Abroad program. 

Moore seeks ways to expand up the classroom experience by taking advantage of local opportunities, such as with her new “Explore Columbus” seminar, which brings students into the built environment in Columbus. Moore also routinely takes on additional students for independent studies, helping them mature as young designers and scholars.

The Provost’s Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer annually recognizes a maximum of three lecturers, senior lecturers or other associated faculty members for their teaching excellence. Honorees are inducted into the Academy of Teaching and also are recognized with an honorarium made possible by the Office of Academic Affairs.
