Parrish `08 earns West Georgia regents' teaching award

Dr. Mark Parrish, a 2008 College of Education graduate, is the 2012-2013 recipient of the University of West Georgia Regents’ Teaching Excellence Award. Parrish earned a doctorate in counselor education and supervision from Auburn and is currently an assistant professor and coordinator of counselor education and college student affairs at West Georgia.  

The Regents’ Teaching Excellence Award has numerous criteria that must be met to be considered a recipient. The recipient must demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching and learning, such designing activities to increase the quality of teaching and learning, to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, and achieve global and multicultural understanding.  

The recipient must also exhibit the use of effective teaching strategies to enhance student learning, including the innovative uses of technology, active learning communities and student portfolios. The award also calls for the recipient to have a strong commitment to fostering the academic success of students outside the classroom, through advising or mentoring.  

As the recipient of the campus-wide University of West Georgia Regents’ Teaching Excellence Award, Parrish is nominated for the state-level version of this award. The state-level award will be chose later in the spring by the University System of Georgia.
