 2013 Distinguished Teaching Contributions Award

Elizabeth Shoenfelt, Western Kentucky University

“Competent,” “intelligent,” “dedicated,” “caring,” and “passion for I-O” are among the many accolades former students have bestowed on Dr. Shoenfelt. She has directed the I-O psychology graduate program for 19 of her 30 years at WKU, during which time she has earned the respect and admiration of hundreds of students. Her teaching excellence is demonstrated by her breadth and depth of knowledge, clarity in organization, varied and effective methods of presentation, and integration of the latest research in courses. Her students gain a deep understanding of the value and relevance of I-O theory and practice. As a teacher she is dedicated to fostering intellectual, professional, and personal development of individual students, which has included directing over 80 theses. Dr. Shoenfelt’s commitment to engagement activities in organizational settings enables students to implement techniques and practices learned in the classroom, provides valuable applied experience, and provides a definite advantage in the job market or application to doctoral programs. There is no greater reward for a teacher than to have the impact her contributions to student success in and beyond the classroom appreciated. Dr. Shoenfelt has been richly rewarded throughout the years and will doubtlessly continue to be for many more to come.
