 2012 Distinguished Teaching Contributions Award

Talya N. Bauer, Portland State University

Dr. Bauer is recognized for the value she provides as an educator, innovator, and mentor. She is a popular teacher as shown by the consistently high ratings she receives. Her innovative work also includes coauthoring online textbooks and a graphic novel that is the first of its kind to encompass key concepts and theories from research using an ongoing storyline. These textbooks have been widely acclaimed for the effective way they promote student learning. Dr. Bauer was among the first at Portland State to recognize how service-learning initiatives could be used as effective learning tools by creating student–community partnerships to develop meaningful experiences. She has also been a leader in incorporating online teaching and learning in a meaningful way. But perhaps her most important contribution has been mentoring doctoral and undergraduate students through their research projects and papers. She is generous with her time and has coauthored with students on nearly half of her 46 journal articles.
