The University of Nebraska's Outstanding Teaching and Instructional Creativity Award (OTICA): recognizes individual faculty members who have demonstrated meritorious and sustained records of excellence and creativity in teaching.
Tiffany Heng-Moss, Ph.D., professor of entomology at UNL. Heng-Moss joined the university in 2001 and has since become what one of her nominators called "truly the epitome of a faculty member in a land-grant university." She has developed an innovative teaching program that spans grade school, undergraduate, graduate and adult education; established a successful research program; and led one of the university's most effective distance education programs. Heng-Moss is committed to building personal relationships with her students and incorporating active learning into her courses, even in large lecture sessions. Heng-Moss has provided leadership in the development of interdisciplinary degree programs within the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and has developed an online version of her Insect Biology course that is available to high school students, among other teaching accomplishments. She is also involved in outreach education efforts to K-12 teachers and students.
