CES congratulates Dr Maria Thaker for receiving the 2018 Professor Priti Shankar Teaching Award for Assistant Professors for Science. She received the award on 15 March 2019, during the meeting of the Court of IISc.
Maria currently teaches an Experiments in Ecology course for undergraduate Biology majors, co-teaches Animal Behaviour for post-graduate students, and conducts an annual workshop in Academic Ethics at CES and in several Institutes around the country.
Maria hopes that by allowing students to engage in both the academic and creative aspects of science in her courses, they are validated as imaginative learners and feel entitled to mix creativity with discovery beyond the classroom.
