Teaching Awards for 2019/2020 PresentedTHE AWARDS THIS YEAR WERE NOT EXPLICITLY DIVIDED INTO THE INNOVATION AND STUDENT SATISFACTION CATEGORIES BECAUSE THE COVID 19 CRISIS FORCED EVERYONE TO REINVENT THEMSELVES
A different kind of academic year, hopefully never to be repeated, indelibly marked by the pandemic that forced us to conceive and apply a new and necessarily innovative teaching method. It involved great commitment from everyone – a collective effort by the whole faculty. This made it difficult, precisely because they were all worthy of mention, to select among the professors from all the Schools those most deserving of the Teaching Awards that the University assigns each year on the basis of two categories: innovation and student satisfaction. This year, however, as explained by Francesco Billari, full professor at the Department of Social and Political Sciences and Dean for the Faculty, "They were not divided into the two traditional categories because everyone was called upon to innovate. Even those who received particularly high evaluations from their students owe it to their ability to adapt to the new reality, to see it not as an obstacle but on the contrary to exploit it to introduce innovative teaching methods. This year we wanted to recognize that type of effort ".
The Teaching Awards, divided according to the five Bocconi Schools, were presented to: Bruno Busacca, Laura Colm, Giada Di Stefano, Stefano Gatti, Luca Ghezzi, Eliana La Ferrara, Gianluca Meloni, Alessandro Recla and Marina Puricelli for the Graduate School; Marco Bonetti and Paolo Pinotti were chosen for the Ph.D. School; Leonardo Etro, Gimede Gigante, Vincenzo Perrone, Marcello Priori, Luigi Proserpio, Luca Sintoni, Chiara Solerio, Federico Vegni and Hannes Wagner for the Undergraduate School; Enrico Basile, Damiano Canale, Emilio Caroli, Cesare Cavallini and Luigi Testa for the Law School; Giovanni Fosti, Andrea Quartarone and Gianluca Salviotti for the SDA Bocconi School of Management.
