CDB Professor receives campus teaching award

David Rivier, Associate Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology, has been selected as the recipient of the Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award.

David Rivier makes complex molecular biology ideas and concepts comprehensible, and emphasizes the discovery process. He pioneered a method of creating video lectures that utilizes inexpensive devices and software that allow a single instructor to produce high-quality videos in any classroom. The availability of videos as a complement to face-to-face lectures has a significant impact on student learning. Rivier “is an educator and mentor who cares deeply about his students and their learning.”

Professor Rivier regularly teaches MCB 252: Cells, Tissues & Development and MCB 317: Genetics and Genomics.
