The new award recognizes faculty members who have established outstanding track records of academic scholarship for at least three years in one or more of the following areas: teaching/pedagogy, application, integration, or discovery.
“Professor Lang’s work in science teaching and learning theory has inspired a generation of teachers-in-training, educational researchers in the field of deafness, and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics educators working with students with disabilities,” said RIT Provost Stanley McKenzie.
An NTID faculty member since 1970, Lang received RIT’s Eisenhart Award for Outstanding Teaching in 1983.
He has taught physics and mathematics, has overseen a teaching effectiveness program, and conducted teaching and learning research. He has prepared new teachers in NTID’s Master of Science in Secondary Education program, written six books, and has two books in review for publication and three manuscripts in progress.
NTID is the first and largest technological college in the world for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. One of eight colleges of RIT, NTID offers educational programs and access and support services to 1,100 deaf and hard-of-hearing students from around the world who study, live and socialize with 14,400 hearing students on RIT's Rochester, N.Y., campus.
