Manjunatha B. Bhat, associate professor of physiology in the Department of Biological Sciences at Winston-Salem State University, has been selected by the University of North Carolina Board of Governors to receive a 2016 Award for Excellence in Teaching.Bhat is one of 17 recipients representing North Carolina’s 16 public universities and the N.C. School of Science and Mathematics who were nominated by special committees on their home campuses to receive the award. The Board of Governors’ Committee on Personnel and Tenure made final selection. Each winner will receive a commemorative bronze medallion and a $12,500 cash prize.“I view my role inside and outside of the classroom more as a facilitator of student learning rather than as a traditional teacher,” said Bhat of his teaching philosophy. “I focus on guiding them through the learning process, providing them with a variety of resources and tools to help them learn as well as self-assess their learning. The guiding principles for my teaching are organization, energy, enthusiasm, excitement, engagement and support. Over the years I have learned that students’ interest in any subject or topic directly correlates with the level of enthusiasm I show while discussing it in either a classroom or at the research laboratory bench.”Bhat is a strong believer in the use of “high tech and high touch” approaches to improve both student learning experience and outcomes. These include digital learning resources such as active and adaptive learning tools, data analytics and metacognitive analysis to monitor student learning, as well as innovative pedagogical practice and peer to peer teaching and mentoring.In addition to his work in the classroom, Bhat serves as a collaborator in WSSU’s Biomedical Research Infrastructure Center (BRIC). He has mentored more than 15 undergraduate research scholars in his laboratory involving them in his research projects. He has published over 30 peer-reviewed publicati
