Professor Julia Health wins University Distinguished Teaching Award

Julia HeathDr. Julia Heath, Professor of Economics, has been announced as a winner of the 2010 University of Memphis’ Distinguished Teaching Award. While a prestigious award in its own right, this is only one of a long line of teaching awards that Dr. Heath has won, including the 2008 Elzinga Award, a national award given by the Southern Economic Association, the economic discipline’s highest recognition of teaching excellence. Julie, a former Chair of the Department of Economics, has taught a wide range of classes, from introductory principles to Ph.D. theory classes. She has developed several new courses, including ‘The Economics of Sports’ and ‘Men, Women and Work’, and is in the process of developing an Economics and Law course that will be added to the department’s elective rotation in spring 2011. Julie has also developed and taught a Ph.D. Teaching Seminar for the teaching assistants in the College, taping each student and providing individual feedback.

Professors KK Fung, Albert Okunade and Judy Simon are also to be congratulated as they were also named as finalists for the Distinguished Teaching Award.
