On November 1st during the Ball State and Western Michigan football game Bond #601, Adam Ballart, was recognized as one of recipients of Ball State University’s Excellence in Teaching Award. Only three professors from Ball State are selected each year for this award. The selection process for the award first begins with the students as they nominate professors they think have excelled within their teaching position, created new innovative ways to learn in the classroom, and have put an emphasis on student engagement. From there ten nominees are selected and interviewed by a small committee made up of faculty and Ball State students who make their choice. The winners of the award receive recognition at the fall faculty dinner and receive a professional development stipend.
Ballart graduated from Ball State University in 2003 where he first rushed Phi Delta Theta. Once he graduated from BSU he moved onto IUPUI in Indianapolis to get his graduate degree. In 2008 Ballart came back to alma mater to teach Spanish. He currently teaches Spanish 101 and 102 for the fall 2016 semester. Ballart was also selected recently by Indiana Kappa to become their faculty advisor for the upcoming years.
Congratulations on your award and success, Adam!
