This project began as a collaboration between the New York State Education Department and the Multimedia Lab at New York University, with the intention of developing a series of videos, aptly titled Teacher of the Year. They were designed to recognize the achievements of acclaimed New York State teachers, as well as to foster a more enriching learning community for their fellow instructors. Our videos provide a platform for exceptional teachers to share their techniques, experiences, advice, and philosophies. Viewers are taken into the classrooms for an intimate experience of the innovative and effective teaching methods utilized by select teachers. They show firsthand how these instructors have gone beyond the classroom and reached their students on a personal, as well as academic, level. The full arsenal of resources presented in these videos celebrate these distinguished teachers, while simultaneously inspiring other instructors to seek the same level of excellence and to take with them those insights that will aid in their own contributions to academia. As we commend the accomplishments of remarkable teachers, we hope to both inform and educate the general public about the passion and dedication of the teaching community. With these goals in mind, we will present the Teachers of the Year series, which is available online as well as on DVD.
