(Reitzammer, Lauri - 2014) -- BFA Award for Excellence in Teaching
Award or Honor Receipt
Professor Reitzammer teaches Greek language and literature at all levels, Greek and Roman literature and classical myth in translation, as well as undergraduate and graduate seminars on Greek religion and gender studies. An innovator in curriculum development, Professor Reitzammer received a prestigious Gamm Award for the cross-cultural course, Gods and Monsters: The Greek and Hindu Epics, which builds on the interdisciplinary interests she pursues in her research. In addition, she created an online introductory Greek course, supported by a donor to the Classics Department, the first example of its type ever offered. Students in the class include participants from CU-Boulder and from all over the U.S. and Canada, as well as—fittingly—from Athens, Greece. Professor Reitzammer is currently working on a new project, developing a graduate seminar on Wanderers, Travelers, and Exiles in Greek Literature, a course that is related to her second book project. Trademarks of her teaching include exceptional student learning, diligent preparation, an ability to foster interaction and engagement in class and a willingness to help students individually, in and outside of class.
