Walid Abushahba, PhD, Math and Sciences, Berkeley College School of Liberal Arts, received the Faculty of the Year award for Innovative Learning during a dinner reception held at Battery Gardens on November 3, 2016, in Manhattan, NY. A resident of Nutley, NJ, Dr. Abushahba was among 18 Berkeley College faculty members and fellow professionals who were recognized by students and colleagues for their contributions to student-centered learning in exceptional ways.

“These annual awards recognize faculty members who serve as role models in demonstrating commitment to the success of Berkeley College students,” said Beth M. Castiglia, PhD, Provost, Berkeley College. “We know they are successful because of their love of teaching. The feedback from their students and colleagues reflect this.”  

“Each class where I am able to keep the students excited, engaged and inspired about the topic of the class for the whole class period, and where they feel that the class time has passed so quickly and had fun, is a memorable experience that I try to cultivate,” Dr. Abushahba said. “These experiences bear fruit at the end of the semester when you receive heartfelt e-mails and comments from students who are grateful for such an experience and describe how your class has inspired and impacted them.”
