IU South Bend professor of English Rebecca Brittenham is the recipient of the IU South Bend Distinguished Teaching Award. The announcement was made recently at a faculty senate meeting.

The award is given for long standing and consistent teaching as rated by students and faculty members.

Brittenham grew up in Seattle, received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University, and joined the IU South Bend English Department in 1999.

Her main interest is in the teaching of writing at all levels and in various contexts. She most recently was the director of the First-Year Writing Program. In 2013 she received one of the university-wide awards, the Bachman Lieber Award for Teaching Excellence. She has also taught graduate and women’s studies classes.

Brittenham is co-author of Key Words for Academic Writers with Hildegard Hoeller and co-editor of Making Sense: Readings for Writers with Robert Coleman, Scott Campbell, and Stephanie Girard. She received the Trustees Teaching Award in 2011 and became a member of the Faculty Colloquium on Excellence in Teaching in 2006.
