ITI's Han Honored for Teaching Excellence
Jiawei Han has received the Campus Award for Excellence in Graduate and Professional Teaching. He will receive $5,000 and a $3,000 recurring salary increase.
Han, a professor of Computer Science and researcher in ITI, emphasizes technical content as well as the history, reasoning, and applicability of data mining. For Han, the "how" and "why" are just as important as the "what." He summarizes his unique approach to teaching with "three I's": inspiration, interaction, and information technology.
