Who produces the great teachers? Evaluating graduate political science programs via teaching awards
Unformatted Document Text:  In Table 5 we summarize the results from Table 4. Interestingly a number of programs appear in all three rankings: teaching awards in all universities, teaching awards at non Research 1 schools, and the ranking based upon scholarship. These include the University of California-Berkeley, the University of Chicago, Indiana University, the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill, and Ohio State University Programs that produced award winning faculty at only Research 1 schools (but not at primarily teaching institutions) and were top Research institutions included Columbia University, Harvard, the University of Michigan, the University of Minnesota, UCLA and Yale University. Graduate Programs that seemingly specialized in teaching included Syracuse, the University of South Carolina, the University of Virginia, the University of Georgia, Cornell University, Georgetown University and Rutgers University. (Table 5 about here) There are several observations that can be derived from the above results. First it appears that although some schools are apparently somewhat better at producing teaching award winning faculty, they do not monopolize the production of such faculty. Clearly, award winning faculty members have been produced by a large number of different political science departments. In some ways it is reminiscent of a saying from the Disney film “Ratatouille” – although not everyone can become a great political science teacher, a great political science teacher can come from anywhere. Second, the top schools producing award winning faculty also tend to be some of the top research institutions in the country as well (University of California-Berkeley, University of Chicago, Indiana University- Bloomington, University of North Carolina- 9

In Table 5 we summarize the results from Table 4. Interestingly a number of
programs appear in all three rankings: teaching awards in all universities, teaching
awards at non Research 1 schools, and the ranking based upon scholarship. These include
the University of California-Berkeley, the University of Chicago, Indiana University, the
University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill, and Ohio State University Programs that
produced award winning faculty at only Research 1 schools (but not at primarily teaching
institutions) and were top Research institutions included Columbia University, Harvard,
the University of Michigan, the University of Minnesota, UCLA and Yale University.
Graduate Programs that seemingly specialized in teaching included Syracuse, the
University of South Carolina, the University of Virginia, the University of Georgia,
Cornell University, Georgetown University and Rutgers University.

There are several observations that can be derived from the above results. First it
appears that although some schools are apparently somewhat better at producing teaching
award winning faculty, they do not monopolize the production of such faculty. Clearly,
award winning faculty members have been produced by a large number of different
political science departments. In some ways it is reminiscent of a saying from the Disney
