Sussex native receives UD ]00i>:cellence in Teaching award Four members of the faculty of the University of Delaware were honored with Excellence in Teaching awards at the close of the spring semester. The four Newark residents are Dewey M. Caron, professor of en- tomology and applied ecology; Ivo Dominguez, associate profes- sor of foreign languages and liter- atures; Bethany Hall-Long, assis- tant professor of nursing; and Ajay K. Prasad, associate professor of mechanical engineering. Each of these faculty members received a $2,500 award to em- phasize the importance of excel- lence in teaching at the university. The excellence in teaching re- cipients are selected on the basis of student evaluations and nomi- nations. Bethany Hall-Long is a first- generation college graduate from Sussex County. As a girl, she was inspired by her parents and grand- mothers to pursue higher educa- tion. . "Although my family was not formally educated, they had high expectations and offered encour- agement to go to college. Neither of my grandmothers had graduat- ed from high school, but they al- ways lectured me on the impor- tance of a woman being educat- ed," said Hall-Long. "Like many professors, I have had great mentors and teachers, but one nurse educator and mentor stands out in my mind as being the central influence in my decision to teach vs. becoming a nurse admin- istrator or continuing to work in health policy. This person is Catherine Malloy, a professor at George Mason University. She taught me first at the Medical Uni- versity of South Carolina, and en- couraged me to pursue doctoral Subscribe to the Gape Gazette Call 645-7700 studies at a very young age for a nurse. She always fostered my in- tellectual ability and remains an enthusiastic supporter. When I was 25, she hired me as a lecturer in nursing and forever changed the course of my career." Hall-Long says humor and flex- ibility are the two essential ingre- dients for successful teaching and recalls an incident where both came into play "Once when I was being taped and broadcast live for a televised class, three of my students, who were off-camera, decided to jump up and do the macarena! Talk about having to he flexible!" Hall-Long is also proud of a tra- dition, at the end of her communi- ty health nursing rotations - three days of what Hall-Long calls "teacher pride and high." "This is the moment when you see that the students have not only integrated complex knowledge and made a significant impact on the health of a population, but are truly in awe of their personal learning experience and celebrate this with their peers and precep- tors as well." A graduate of Indian River High School, Hall-Long is the daughter of David and Carolyn Hall, 'the spouse of Dana Long and the mother of Brock Long. She received her bachelor's in nursing from Thomas Jefferson University, her master's in nurs- ing from the Medical University of South Carolina and her doctor- ate in 1993 from George Mason University.
