NCFR members Melissa Landers-Potts, Ph.D., Bill Anderson, Ph.D., CFLE, and Raeann R. Hamon, Ph.D., CFLE, were each presented with Cognella Innovation in Teaching Awards for Family Science at the 2018 NCFR Annual Conference on Nov. 7.

Publisher Cognella and NCFR created the award in partnership to recognize outstanding teachers in the Family Science discipline, educators who go above and beyond to introduce cutting-edge teaching practices that engage their students and advance the discipline.

Dr. Landers-Potts received the first-place honor and a $1,000 cash prize. Drs. Anderson and Hamon tied for second place and received $500 credits toward Cognella books. Initially, only two instructors were intended to be honored, a first-place recipient and a second-place recipient, but the quality of the submissions inspired the judging panel to expand the award to recognize three phenomenal instructors.
