Thanks to all of you for speaking at AU 2014! By all accounts it was a tremendous year thanks to a top-notch lineup, so we hope to hear from many of you again next year. Each year our speaker awards go to those who score the highest in after-class surveys. For reference, the average speaker rating this year was 8.73.
Here are our 2014 winners
- The Newbie Award: Mark Shapiro (9.47)
- The Hands-On Lab Award: Marcello Sgambelluri (9.94)
- The Roundtable Award: Robert Green (9.54)
- The Lecture Award: Jeanne Aarhus (9.78)
How classes are scored
For a class to qualify for an award we need to receive 25 completed surveys (or 10 for a Roundtable class). The speaker rating is the average of your scores for 1) class materials, 2) preparation, 3) quality of technical content, 4) knowledge of the subject, and 5) ability to present and communicate.
Find out how you compare
The SRC will remain open until January 9, 2015. In the meantime, you can continue to access your class survey results and ratings. Interested in how your presentation compares with others in your track? Check out the scores below:
