Noah Bukowski earns GATA
The Department of English would like to congratulate Ma/PhD Student Noah Bukowski for winning the 2019-2020 Graduate Associate Teaching Award (GATA). The GATA is Ohio State’s highest recognition of the outstanding teaching provided by graduate students serving as Graduate Teaching Associates. This award, administered by the College of Arts and Sciences Student Council, is particularly notable because it is the only teaching award that is completely administered by students.
This year, the Student Council received almost 80 nominations for this award. Bukowski was selected as a finalist and received the award after careful consideration of the nominees’ CVs and SEI scores, interviews with members of Student Council and classroom visits.
Bukowski specializes in rhetoric, composition and literacy who has exceptional experience as an instructor since being a First-Year Writing teaching fellow during the end of his undergraduate career. Bukowski is primarily interested in how people with visible physical disabilities move through academic spaces, and he applies this theory to practice through writing center studies and teaching.
